Topic: Breaking Down Silos For Student Achievement
Many innovative programs designed to promote student success exist in isolation. Few people outside the unit offering the program are aware of its existence or impact. To transform this, a university-wide retention task force cataloged and publicized these programs. Among those innovations were cross-unit collaborations in residence halls.
Since we believe in educating the whole student for a life of service, purpose, and leadership, we have many collaborative efforts between academic programs and student affairs that promote student success; our team will focus on first-year seminars and support we provide to enhance physical and emotional health and professional preparedness.
