Research Findings Part 1: What Defines Student Success?

Over the last several months, the Supporting Student Success team has presented findings from the research study to conference attendees #ACPA2013, #CSSHE2013 and #CACUSS2013. We are happy to share the slide decks from recent presentations. You can find them at the top of the page under the “Presentations and Publications” tab.

This week we are posting the slides from a presentation titled, “What Defines Student Success? A Multiple Choice Question.” With “student success” being one of the most commonly used phrases in higher education, we asked research study participants to define the term in their own words. We found the variation in the definitions quite interesting. The presentation is below but we also invite you to download the presentation and our full set of accompanying notes. All our presentations can be found on the “Presentations and Publications” tab.

As always, we endeavor for this blog space to be used as a place for dialogue. Please feel free to “leave a comment” at the bottom of this post with your thoughts, perceptions and opinions related to defining student success.

Check back in the coming weeks as we will be posting slides on faculty member perceptions of programs and services that support student success, as well as tips from students about improving their learning experience.
