Defining the Faculty Role in Student Success
This workshop will be facilitated by EAB.
Faculty engagement is critical to ensuring that student success efforts have staying power on campus. In this session, we will focus on best practices for engaging faculty as a collective, whether in committee work, departmental planning, or governance groups. We will review how academic leaders can arm faculty with tools to make better curricular decisions, calibrate academic policies to eliminate unnecessary barriers to student persistence and smooth the transition to new advising models. The presentation will also explore methods to engage faculty in identifying early signs of student risk and mentoring at-risk student populations. We will conclude with a look at how some institutions are instilling accountability for student success outcomes among distributed units—a perennial challenge for any central administration.
