The Student Success Summit is an opportunity to bring together campus partners in a community of practice to discuss strategies to foster student success and well-being. This is an important opportunity for shared learning and professional development. In addition to a keynote speaker, we will have presentations and concurrent sessions that are targeted to the various ways faculty and staff can continue to support student success at Ball State. The goals of the summit include:
- Articulating the important role faculty & staff play in student success
- Reinforcing the importance of leveraging available technology and tools (e.g., Navigate & Canvas), which are essential to our student success efforts
- Providing faculty and staff with data to help them better understand Ball State’s incoming and current students
- Ensuring faculty and staff advance their understanding about the ways we are approaching student success efforts and initiatives at Ball State
