Description:
This fall, the University reported the highest retention, persistence, and graduation rates it has ever achieved. These indicators of increasing student success are important milestones along the path the University embarked on seven years ago, but much remains to be done if we are to achieve the University’s goals for the 2020-2025 period. The session will review the centrality of the undergraduate learning experience in the aims, strategies, and outcomes that are collectively called the "Student Success Initiatives.” The session will also provide an opportunity for participants to discuss and propose next steps.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals: Share information about the Student Success Initiatives and engage participants in a discussion of next steps for increasing and deepening student engagement in curricular and co-curricular learning. Audience: All members of the university community
