College Success

Background:

In Fall 2012, the College Success Intervention partnered with a Title V grant.  Interventions with the intent to improve student success and retention include the following:

Gateway Center for Academic Achievement for college-level students, providing students with a wide range of tutorial support services, technology instruction, academic advising, and college success strategies. This facility is conducive to group study and collaborative learning activities, and provides space for faculty development activities. 

Strategies to improve student success in high enrollment/low student success courses, including Appreciation of Art, Basic Statistics, College Algebra, College Success (formerly College Experience), Composition I and II, Computer Concepts and Applications, Critical Thinking, History of Western Civilization I and II, Introduction to Business, Introduction to Psychology, Introduction to Sociology, U.S. History I and II.

Embedded tutoring, our hybrid Supplemental Instruction (SI) model, is attached to barrier courses in the core curriculum. 

Professional development opportunities have been created for faculty to introduce active and collaborative learning and college success strategies into college-level courses.

Development of online resources for college-level students to aid in the improvement of their academic skills.
