Abstract/ Summary

Student success is central to UMaine's mission, values, reputation and fiscal health. Improving first-year student success is a major focus for Academic Affairs and Student Affairs in 2018-2019. The goal is to develop an integrated plan of actions that will result in improved first year student success as defined by first year retention.

Student Success Hub

Develop a set of recommendations about ways in which UMaine could develop a centrally located resource hub for students. The vision is a single location, virtual and/or in person, where students could come with questions/concerns and have them addressed no matter what the content area (e.g., financial, academic, social, health) and where they could receive advocacy, support, and referral services. As you carry out this work, please explore models developed at other universities that approximate or achieve this vision and consider the following questions:

1. What are the staffing and other resource needs?

2. How might this entity fit into UMaine's organizational structure?

3. How might this entity network with other resources (e.g., Counseling Center, Career Center, Writing Center, Student Financial Aid, etc.)?

4. How can Navigate, the new student success management system being piloted in the spring, be integrated with the hub?
