Student Services Questions

2018-2021 PAR Cycle

1. Please review your SAO data. Based on that review, what are your top 2-3 priorities for improving student success?
 
2. Imagine yourself as a student trying to participate in/engage with your service area. What are that student’s key obstacles to engaging with your service area? How would they move through the services offered in your area? What can you or others do to increase the probability that they will successfully complete? How might increased collaboration with other service or academic areas reinforce the services offered in your area?
 
3. Now, imagine yourself as a part-time student trying to participate in/engage with your service area. What additional challenges do they face, and what can you or others do to increase the probability that they will successfully complete? How might increased collaboration with other service or academic areas reinforce the services offered in your area?
 
4. Please refer to your equity data by race-ethnicity and gender. Our students do not succeed, persist or complete “equally.” If we set aside the notion that our students have deficiencies that we cannot remedy, what adjustments in service delivery in your area could make a difference in equitable student outcomes?
 
5. Reflecting upon your data or previous program reviews, what work in your service area are you most proud of, and what problem(s) remain a major challenge for your service area?
 
6. Please review the Strategic Plan Goal, the Student Milestones Framework and Objectives, and Narrative. How will your discipline contribute to achievement of those priority initiatives and the overall goal in the next 3 years?
 
7. What infrastructure or college-wide issues continue to present challenges to your students successfully achieving their goals? Do you have suggestions for how to remove those challenges? If so, share them.
 
8. Reflecting on your answer to questions 1-7, what new initiatives (no more than 5) do you propose for the next three years? And, what is your general plan for achieving them?
