Student Success Teams


Mission:

A Student Success Team (SST) is a solution oriented general education process whose purpose is to engage all involved parties in providing an equitable, positive, problem-solving approach to assist students, families and teachers in developing effective solutions, identify instructional strategies, interventions and/or supports that may resolve or alleviate academic, behavioral, and/or social-emotional needs.  The SST process may lead to a continuum of educational programming and services for maximizing student success within the school environment. The mission of the workgroup is to develop and institutionalize SST’s at Mesa College.


Goals:

  1. Explore and research approaches to SST’s already implemented at other institutions.
  2. Develop, Pilot, and Evaluate a Student Success Team for the 22-23 Academic Year.
  3. Expand and Institutionalize SST’s starting in the 23-24 Academic Year.

Outcomes:

Increase student success. The following student success metrics are part of the Mesa2030 Roadmap:​

  • Completion: the percentage of students who complete their educational goal (degree, certificate, transfer/transfer prepared) within six years.​
  • Term to Term Persistence: Percentage of students who continue at Mesa from term to term. ​
  • Course Success: Percentage of students enrolled at census who complete a course with a passing grade. ​

In accordance with the Mesa Pathways Call to Action, we would also like to shorten the time it takes students to complete their educational goals. ​
