Everyone has a role in Student Success
The College embarked on its journey with Achieving the Dream in April 2013.
Each Green River employee has a role in Student Success--every voice matters. That was the underlying message at the Student Success team meeting held on Jan. 22, where a group of campus members reviewed the Guided Pathways concept and discussed the ways in which Green River communicates paths to students.
The discussion included representatives from Career and Advising, Enrollment, Information Technology, Marketing, Transitional Studies and Wellness, and others. "The objective of this work is not to be critical of any work area or direct the work of other departments, but rather to work together and join perspectives to discover if there are better ways to leverage resources and support each student's success," remarked Christine McMullin, who co-chairs the Student Success team with Catherine Cantrell.
"When we can look at data and facts in relation to the challenges faced by students, broad-based collaboration helps us all work more effectively," said Cantrell.
This is one of several exercises and discussions held or hosted by the Student Success Team since the College embarked on its journey with Achieving the Dream in April 2013.
As part of ATD efforts, Rob Johnstone, founder and president of the National Center for Inquiry & Improvement, will be returning to campus in April.
