Student Success Committee concludes successful first year

May 19, 2015

The University's Student Success Committee in its inaugural year took several steps to fulfilling the goals of an important strategic priority at Pacific: improving student success and outcomes.

In the 2014-15 academic year, the committee:

  • Developed a definition of what student success means at Pacific
  • Reviewed metrics to gauge student success
  • Reviewed academic policies that may impede student success, recommending that some policies be brought to Academic Council for revision
  • Developed a Strategic Investment Fund proposal for student success, resulting in $760,000 that will allow an early-alert plan and other student supports to be put in place

Formed in September to respond to the strategic priority to increase student success and graduation rates, the Student Success Committee consists of 35 members who are students, faculty, administrators and staff from across the University. 

"People across the University see the issue of student success as vitally important. As the size and breadth of this committee shows, the Pacific community is passionate about and committed to our students' success. The committee's work this year and going forward will help Pacific meet this shared goal," said Linda Buckley, associate vice president for planning, who chairs the committee.
