  • Purpose is to show that all of us are responsible for Student Success. My goal is not to exclude, difficult to get more circles on the page. IT, CELT, Libraries, IRPE, etc… – implied that they support ALL missions..
  • Right now, 2010 is 82.9%2009 2nd year is 72.7%
  • Richard, this slide shows that our students with ACT < 22, on average are much less successful than the rest of the cohort. But, it also shows that the efforts of the past 4 years have raised first year success for the bottom quartile by 5 – 10%.
  • We have discussed this more than once. I have been actively looking for space possibilities. The time is now for us to develop the proposal, to bring the services together that will enhance efficiency and provide one-stop, or at least fewer stop shopping for our students. Appoint committee to put this together. Due this semester.
  • Yep we’re like the cheerleaders
  • Or at least we are first! Other universities have offered oral comm across the curriculum, writing across the curriculum, and even speaking and writing across the curriculum….none have yet created multi-modal communication (oral, written, visual) across flat print/static, face-to-face (interpersonal, teams, public speaking), and digital/online environments.
  • How will we do this? Develop infrastructure for support in two ways: Faculty development and Student tutoring
  • QUIZ: 1. What is MCXC? 2. Why did we pick it for our QEP? 3. How will we implement it?
