UH campus and system teams were asked to identify large scale/high impact strategies, develop tactics necessary to implement the strategies, and prioritize next steps. Teams are currently moving forward on implementing their plans.
- Second intake of 40 student cohort into the Lunalino Scholars program (similar to CUNY’s ASAP model). Promising results so far: scholars have higher GPAs and a 90% fall-to-spring retention versus 77% for all first-time students.
- Examining health care programs for part-time student models/cohorts.
- Looking at scheduling options that would let students select their schedule by selecting from columns (encourage ENG/MATH in first year). For example, column A contains ENG courses, column B has MATH courses, column C would have “high pass” courses, etc.
- Implementing Stat-way to help students from developmental level math to get through college statistics in one year. Target for use in CTE programs and will work with UHWO on possible articulations.
||Work Plan Update
- Completed a December 2012 survey with responses from 500+ part time students. The results were presented at convocation. Part time students indicated they would like:
- more evening and online classes
- help with financial aid or other means of financial support (if they don’t qualify for federal aid due to their income level)
- Participating in UH system pilots for Reverse Transfer and Auto Notation of Credentials (Certificates of Achievements for spring 2013).
