To be more strategic in our student-success efforts, an Implementation Team has been formed. You may have read about it in the Progress as a "new committee." We have embarked on a collaborative initiative to unite the efforts of Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, Administrative Affairs, and Advancement to enhance Student Success at EKU.
The Implementation Team is focused on "discovering silos, ceilings, and walls in order to identify pathways" for students to enter EKU, to persist, and to graduate. While considerable progress has been made toward Student Success, we know that by working together we can achieve even more.
Team members include the vice presidents, AVPs, the deans, and the directors in Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, and Financial Affairs. Chairs, faculty, and students are also represented. The members were selected for this team because of the input they can provide and their role in helping implement the decisions. The decisions will focus on improving communication flow, procedures, and processes. Recommendations pertaining to established administrative or academic policies (e.g., curriculum) will be vetted through the normal processes.
The first meeting was Monday, October 3. The meetings are 8-10 a.m. each Monday morning.
