Description:
What is the most important factor for student success? Historically we have used high school grades, first generation status, ACT/SAT scores as indicators of how students will succeed at CSU, but a student’s motivation and persistence may be just as important or more important than the traditional indicators. Did you know that new students already provide information about their attitudes during the first five weeks of classes? This presentation will provide an overview of these non-cognitive factors and early intervention efforts already implemented along with brainstorming future possibilities.
Goals and Target Audience:
Anyone interested in student success at CSU

Description:
Case management in higher education is an emerging field designed to mitigate campus violence, behavioral issues, and support the increasing number of students coming to college with increasingly more significant mental health issues. Colorado State University has been on the leading edge of this development from the beginning in 2007. This PDI session will focus on the development of Colorado State University’s Student Case Management program from a single role to a stand-alone department in 5 years’ time.
Goals and Target Audience:
1 The creative funding mechanisms that has allowed this important service, including specialized professionals, to develop. We will highlight the creative strategies implemented to cover professional salaries, administrative support, and other office needs from a variety of budgets across campus even in difficult economic times. 2 Best practices utilized to support students returning to campus after an alcohol/drug transport. Additionally, we will introduce an innovative and evolving program designed to support students returning to campus following a mental health hospitalization. 3 Prospering collaborations with health services, The Student Consultation Team, Safety team, community hospitals, and internal departments that balance a desire to increase campus safety and discretion with regard to the sharing of sensitive student information. We will share how Colorado State University connects the dots across campus for students of concern.
