Retention the focus of Top Panel

In November, our SC directors Kim Cuny and Erin Ellis received the Top Panel Award for their contributions to a panel titled “Communication Center Connections with the Basic Course.” The award was presented by the National Communication Association’s Communication Centers Section in Washington, DC. The panel focused on how speaking centers across the country can better connect to basic communication studies courses like UNCG’s CST 105. In this time of retention-driven funding, audience members were particularly interested to learn that freshmen who visited the speaking center one time last academic year returned to UNCG for sophomore year at a 5% higher rate than freshmen who did not use our services. Those who utilized our services more than once returned at an 8% higher rate.
