If you see this person over the next few days, agents are advised to:
- Ask for a Canvancement button
- Ask about the Canvas Community - Go Rogue with Us
- Ask about Dropout Detective
I just re-read this and realize I missed an important piece of information!
You'll have BUTTONS?! Yes!!
Also, I'd love to pick your brain a little bit about Dropout Detective and if you've heard anything in the wind about Nuro-Retention and how that works for your institution. You're awesome Kona! Will be super happy to finally put a (in person) face to a name.
Yep, we'all have buttons!!
And yes, I'd love to sit (or walk or stand) and chat with you about DD and retention in general. It's definitely one of my passions!
