Faculty members are queried about a targeted list of potentially at-risk students. They provide Cardinal Early Alerts in the form of progress reports about these students. We then target outreach and Success Check-In meetings with their Academic Advisor to any student marked at-risk by their faculty member. Academic Advisors visit with students to identify the leading issues they are facing to find root causes and then work with students to find solutions. Academic Advisors refer students to campus resources as needed and focus on goal setting and achievement during these appointments.
