Interview with Laurie Weidner, CEO of Parent Education Partners
Check out my interview with Laurie today as we discuss the role of parents in student engagement, retention, and success. This is often a resource not utilized enough within the fraternity and sorority community as an ally. We talk about what makes Cal State Fullerton a great campus, Laurie’s role as a member of the Chancellor’s Leadership Council for the entire California State University system (23 campuses), how to improve student retention and completion rates, differences in the K-12 education system between California and Tennessee, why Greek Life is perfect for first generation college students, how Greek Life enables students to be more competitive in tight job markets, how fraternities and sororities can better retain their members, advice for better PR on your campus, how fraternities and sororities can make parents advocates in Greek Life, and what high school students should be doing to get themselves more prepared for their next step in their career or higher education. This is a do not miss episode!
