Greetings, all! Welcome to our new Faculty Center blog. I hope it will provide a nice forum for many issues facing faculty at CSU.
The calendar seems to fill up as fast as I can schedule Roundtable meetings, so I thought I’d try a “virtual” conversation this month. Our topic is prompted by a call from on high (the USG system office): in our statewide effort to help more students finish college, can faculty identify institutional and system-wide policies that hinder students’ progress? Let’s call it, When policies and progression collide.
When students run off the rails, could faculty have helped to avert the disaster? How so?
What kinds of tough calls do you find yourself making in the classroom or as an advisor?
What support could you use to face the challenges of keeping students moving productively toward graduation?
Thanks for giving this some thought. Looking forward to hearing your comments,
Susan Hrach, Director of the Faculty Center
