Track 3: Student Engagement and Persistence
Student Academic Success Services at San Jose State University: Coordinating Academic Support Services to Improve Student Success and Persistence
Student support services such as academic advising, Education Opportunity Programs (EOP), tutoring, writing services, and peer mentoring can be critical for retaining students and helping them persist at college. Typically, these services are often found in Student Affairs. Five years ago, San Jose State University made a change and moved these support services to Academic Affairs and created a new unit, Student Academic Success Services, to coordinate these units. This poster will showcase these services and the effects on retention rates and student persistence.
