Student success is the outcome of effectively addressing your institutional initiatives. It is the keystone of campus health: In achieving it, you’ll positively influence the full spectrum of the student experience from new student recruitment to alumni engagement.
This white paper outlines several fundamental steps in establishing a framework for your campus to craft and execute a data-informed student success strategy, including:
- Building a strong committee for campus buy-in
- Collecting data that spans four broad categories: assessing student priorities and satisfaction, plotting your attrition curve, understanding your students’ non-cognitive needs, and comparing to national benchmarks
- Establishing first-year student success goals
- Developing action plans for areas where improvement is required to best meet student expectations, perceptions, and needs
