Freshman Success Faculty Council
Promoting academic success of first-year students.
The Freshman Success Faculty Council is a standing committee appointed by the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. The Council provides college-wide leadership on efforts to promote the academic success of first-year students. Council activities and initiatives may include: 1) the identification of innovative teaching pedagogies, inclusive teaching, and other “best practices” that engage freshman in classrooms, studios, and laboratory learning, 2) promoting out-of-class activities including research and professional activities, 3) sharing strategies with teaching colleagues for identifying “at risk” students and intervention methods for students with academic and personal challenges.
