PDF Version of the Student Success Initiative booklet.
The Student Success Initiative is a program that is comprised of several initiatives designed to enhance student success and retention. Components include:
Each student and Resident Assistant will meet twice each semester and will have a structured conversation focused on student success using a Discussion Guide. The SSI Discussion Guide has been adapted from time-tested programs at colleges and universities from across the country. The seesions, questions, and Core Objectives have been developed with the Dixie State student in mind. Each of the four sessions is applicable to a broad range of situations that many students face at different stages in their academic careers. The questions are designed to be a catalyst for a deeper conversation about each student’s individual academic experience. With the goal setting and action planning section, the student and RA can work together toward making this a personalized experience for each student. In each subsequent section, previous goals are revisited and refined after a self-inventory is taken.
Your RA will work with you to resolve any problems you may be facing. They are your allies and will help refer you to the appropriate campus resources that can help with your needs.
