Higher Education: Finish what you Started
In this episode of Talent Talk we hear from Whitney Rhyne, the Director of Strategic Initiatives at Florida Southwestern State College. Whitney begins by telling us about FSW and the diverse and unique student population they serve in Southwest Florida’s five-county region, ranging from students who just graduated high school and full-time professionals looking to attend night classes to further their career, to military veterans. Whitney also goes into detail about the newly developed Second Look Initiative, a program aiming to connect with students who were previously enrolled at FSW who were unable to complete their degrees, and what the process is like to start a program like the Second Look Initiative. Additionally, she explains the process for a student who previously attended FSW who was unable to complete their degree to inquire about their standing with the college and actively seeking to complete their degree and/or graduate.
