First Year Student Success Workshop - June 23, 2016

First Year Student Success Workshop (FYSS) - June 23, 2016

The FYSS Workshop intended to facilitate cross-campus dialogue related to supporting the academic success of first year, non-transfer students.

Workshop participants had the opportunity to:

  • Identify connections between their unit’s program(s) and first year student success.
  • Gain a better understanding of their unit's programming for first year student success in relation to both (a) the literature on student success and (b) what units across campus are doing for first year student success, including areas of overlap and uniqueness.
  • Made a start on using logic models to describe and analyze your unit’s contributions to first year student success.
  • Identify next steps for their program(s) and for beginning conversations with other units on campus with similar goals.
