Helping students succeed and reducing the number of failures and withdrawals in a course are top priorities for public universities. Barbara Barone of the Dolciani Mathematics Learning Center will speak about the Early Alert system the DMLC uses in collaboration with the Dept. of Mathematics and Statistics to identify students at risk of not succeeding and reach out to them before it is too late. Placing students correctly is a challenge essential to ensuring students will be able to succeed in their coursework. Alicia Ramos (Romance Languages) and Clifford Irizarry (Chanin Language Center) will talk about their placement procedures that have proven very effective. Marcia Liu from Asian American Studies will speak about her research on supporting students and its practical implications, as well as the cultural issues pertinent to the topic of mental health. Finally, Yvette Boafo and Tyler Sampson (Advising) will discuss their work with the Student Success Center and programs for helping students who are on academic probation.
