Supportive Services Panel: Outside of the Adult Education Classroom @ Office of Adult Education
Mar 31 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Panelist: Coming Soon…

Description:
At the Office of Adult Education we understand that adult learners returning to school have other life responsibilities besides going to class. These responsibilities can sometime make attending class and completing assignments challenging and can deter learners from completing their education. During this panel we will review a number of services and resources to help adult learners succeed in the classroom while still handling their responsibilities at work and at home. This offering is for adults, but those who work with adult learners.
