A Three-Legged Stool Approach to Student Success

A primary strength of The Chicago School is its continual pledge to retain students while still maintaining the academic quality of its programs. Our commitment to student success is operationalized through a number of initiatives, but none more powerful than the successful collaboration of three institutional areas: Academic Support, Faculty Development, and Student Affairs.

In Their Own Words: Listening to Students as Formative Assessment of Student Success

In this session we describe how UC Irvine leverages faculty, administration, and students to support student success via a campuswide workgroup known as “The Assessment Group.” UCI’s Assessment Group collaborated on a multi-year effort to engage with students and faculty to improve the undergraduate experience. The group explored student engagement and coursework experiences via semi‐structured interviews of over 100 enrolled juniors. This presentation will summarize the major themes that emerged when students told us about what they need to feel engaged on campus. Strategies for using these results for institutional improvement will be discussed.
