First Year Student Success (FYSS)
The First Year Student Success (FYSS) Workshop was held in June 2016. The workshop intended to facilitate cross-campus dialogue related to supporting the academic success of first-year, non-transfer students.
Workshop participants had the opportunity to:
- Identify connections between their unit’s program(s) and first-year student success.
- Gain a better understanding of their unit's programming for first year student success in relation to both the literature on student success and what units across campus are doing for first-year student success, including areas of overlap and uniqueness.
- Made a start on using logic models to describe and analyze your unit’s contributions to first-year student success.
- Identify next steps for their program(s) and for beginning conversations with other units on campus with similar goals.
