    1. 1. Kiara Smith P.A.S.S. Coordinator-North Lake College UCAN Conference-May 22, 2014 P.A.S.S. Promoting Academic Student Success
    2. 2. Student retention has been, is currently, and will continue to be a hot topic within higher education. Large numbers of underprepared students enter colleges and universities each semester, and institutions have prepared by implementing student success programs. Many of these programs, however, are designed to be safeguards from academic trouble. They provide access to campus support such as free tutoring, intentional student engagement, case management and more. Often, these resources are underutilized by the very students that need the services, but for some reason or another fail to take advantage of them. This in turn leads to academic difficulties for the student and retention issues for the institution. Proposal
