Implementation Team Actions
- Instituted the Persistence Committee, which includes membership from University College, Dean of Students, Housing, Financial Aid, Student Accounts, and the Graduate School. The Persistence Committee discusses individual student cases and recommends action based on each student's unique circumstances.
The University started the process of hiring and training Peer Academic Coaches to develop a large corps of peer-coaches to support the work of the Persistence Committee.
- Continue to develop processes and procedures of Persistence Committee, with particular attention to how the work of the Persistence Committee overlaps with other student support services on campus, particularly the Redbird Cares Team
