Title of Presentation

Office of Learning Resources: Get Back on Track

Start Date

6-1-2022 1:00 PM

Abstract/Description

This session will be a debrief of the success of our first ever “Get Back on Track” event held in the LTC Nov. 10, 2021. Presenters will share background and numbers on the mid-term grade data from Fall 2021 that raised alarms in many areas of the University.

Responding to a desire by various offices to stage some sort of intervention, several members of the LTC got together to plan a one-stop-shop type of event for students who were struggling academically and looking to get back on track. Although the event initially was targeted at students with multiple mid-term grades of D or F, as well as those who had a flag in SSN indicating they should consider dropping a course, word quickly spread throughout campus.

With only five days of planning, over 30 students stopped by the event asking for help. Students were able to get speed academic coaching, have an advising appointment with an advisor from their school/college, as well as meet with an advisor from the Flyer Student Services office. Other support areas had tables as well in case students had questions or wanted to take advantage of their services.

Presenters will share lessons learned, ideas for the future, and breakdown why we need to host more events like this in the future.
