  • Create a campus climate where early and ongoing intervention is part of the college culture.
  • Develop and implement a student success course.
  • Focus on a professional development program for faculty and student services staff to promote a culture of evidence and to increase student engagement in the learning and advising pocess.
  • Review policies, practices and procedures related to advising, assessment, placement, prerequisites, and payment practices.
  • Engage the community in an advisory capacity.
