The webinar will provide techniques whose purpose is to motivate students to take advantage of the broad spectrum of services, and planning tools that UNCW offers. The discussion will focus on specific steps that we can take, in order to persuade and guide students toward accessing services, while still allowing them to be self-directed learners.
