The Student Success Committee provides guidance and support to students in their journey towards timely degree completion and graduation. This includes identifying and addressing barriers to academic progress and success, monitoring student progress, and implementing strategies to support students in achieving their academic goals.
Specific responsibilities include the following:
- Support the diffusion of student success related innovations across administrative and academic units in the College.
- Meet each semester to review undergraduate student appeals who have been identified on “Academic Notice” (GPA below a 2.0) or student suspension (GPA below 2.0 for multiple semesters) and make recommendation to the Dean’s Office.
- Review scholarship applications for incoming and returning students and recommend the distribution of college-level awards to support recruitment, retention, continuation, and completion.
Each year, the Committee may also be asked to engage in additional activities tied to University or College initiatives or directives.
The Associate Dean for Student Success serves as the chair of this Committee. The Student Success Committee includes representatives from the Office of Student Success Staff, one faculty member from each School, and the Director for Office of Student Success.
