Student Success & You
Many of you have heard, the terms student success, retention, and graduation rates. But many of of us wonder, "How does that apply to me as a staff member? What can I as an individual do? And if I were to do something, where would I find the time to do it on top of all the other tasks I have?
For some of us, helping students be successful in their studies and college life can be as simple as understanding factors that might stress a student for that particular month. By being aware of factors that affect our students and by helping students to feel welcomed on this campus, we as individuals and as a team can help our students succeed!
The Staff Council Spotlight will be featuring monthly columns about how you can help Students, and you can review the following Student Stress Calendar, adapted from "Student Stress Schedule," Illinois State University, Office of Residential Life, RA Handbook, 1991-92.
