Abstract/ Summary

Student success is central to UMaine’s mission, values, reputation and fiscal health. The first year of a student’s academic experience has a particularly significant impact on their academic success or failure. A variety of factors contribute to students’ success (or failure) in their first year. In 2018-2019, the Divisions of Academic Affairs and Student Life are collaborating on the development of a plan to optimize the first-year student experience. The goal is to help students form a solid foundation for initial and continued success.
