HARVARD AT HOME - THE TRANSITION FROM HIGH SCHOOL TO COLLEGE FOR THE PANDEMIC GENERATION
THIS VIRTUAL EVENT is presented by the Harvard Graduate School of Education. It will address questions such as "What should parents and other concerned family members be prepared to do? What should they expect from college officials?"
Date: Wednesday, March 23, 2022
Time: 3:00PM Eastern
Place: THIS IS A VIRTUAL EVENT
The pandemic has created disruptions across the education sector — including the all-important pathway from high school to college. For high school students in the graduating classes of 2020, 2021, and 2022, the transition from high school to college has become less clear. Connections between students and their teachers and school counselors may have frayed; traditional markers of achievement may have been impossible; and student aspirations may have changed.
Join us as we ask: What is the transition support that this generation needs? With all the disruption — and with counseling shortages, pressure to “catch up,” and/or a lack of direction (or a willingness to explore alternatives to college) — what should counselors, educators, and parents be considering, and what should college officials be prepared to do?
Speakers will include Mandy Savitz-Romer with the Harvard Graduate School of Education and Liya Escalera with the University of Massachusettes.
