Graduate Parkside Open House Tuesday, April 2
Regardless of our individual roles here at UW-Parkside, we are united in our focus to help students achieve their goal of earning a degree. Individually and collectively, we have a vested interest in seeing our students achieve, persist, and ultimately graduate from UW-Parkside.
A 2009 Title III Grant was awarded to UW-Parkside with the intent of impacting retention rates particularly with at-risk, first-year, first-time students, which describes the majority of our student demographic.
You're invited to the Graduate Parkside Open House on Tuesday, April 2, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. in Wyllie D174, Lower Main Place. UW-Parkside Chancellor Debbie Ford, Associate Provost Dennis Rome, and program director Cynthia Graham will share brief remarks beginning at noon. Graduate Parkside staff members will be on-hand to share additional insights about the work the team has been doing as well as address any questions you have.
Funded through 2014, Graduate Parkside, serves as a collaborating partner in helping UW-Parkside foster an environment that promotes student retention. Working with many areas of the university, including advising, enrollment management, and faculty and staff through the LINK program, Graduate Parkside is looking at ways to leverage tutoring and supplemental instruction, drive use and confidence in PASS, partner with the Advising Center as a hub of student success, improve communication with at-risk students, and develop more effective communication practices in general to help students feel connected, engaged, and valued.Just one of the ways Graduate Parkside's grant funding is helping students connect with each other (a major contributor to student retention) is through the Virtual Student Success Center (VSSC). You can learn more about the Virtual Student Success Center during the open house and be sure to like the VSSC page on Facebook.
