 11/24/2015State System’s ‘Student Success Network’ lives up to its name
​Nothing should matter more to a college or university than ensuring its students succeed—academically and in their lives. Virtually every institution offers an array of programs and services designed to help students achieve that success, including summer learning programs, first-year experiences, early warning systems to identify students who might be struggling—academically and socially—with the transition to college, tutoring centers and peer mentoring. The programs, while available to all students, often are geared toward underrepresented minority students and those from low-income backgrounds—frequently first-generation college students whose families have no prior collegiate experience. There’s more to it, though, than just making the programs and services available.
