    1. Creating a Definition ofSTUDENT SUCCESSThe Sheridan College Experience Maria Lucido-Bezely Janet Shuh Joe Henry

    2. AGENDA For ToDAY • How we got here and why? • The process • The next steps. • Questions

    3. About Sheridan • Approx. 19,000 students • 4 Campuses – Oakville (2), Brampton, Mississauga • Publically supported institution • Certificates to Bachelor Degrees • The University “Journey”

    4. “The student retention challenge that post secondary institutions face today will not be solved by effective, yet insular efforts of individual programs or departments. Today’s challenge requires an inclusive institution wide approach, collective problem solving and coordinated efforts that respond to the needs of a very diverse student population.”

    5. In the beginning • College wide Student Retention Task Force • Identify and understand the current picture through evidence and sound data • Identify existing internal expertise, programs and supports

    6. What Data Existed to help us understand who, when and why students leave, persist and what factors causes difficulty? • Attrition rates per academic school from semester one to two and year one to two • Academic performance of semester one students • Semester one in-class survey re: sources of difficulty • Reasons for first year student failure and drop outs What “needed” data did not exist and how would we build the collection processes moving forward?

    7. What are those primary reasons for first semester “fail outs” and “drop outs”?

    8. What is student retention? Student Retention is about: helping student to be successful Student Retention is not about: letting the weak slide by, or losing academic integrity

    9. What is Student success?

    10. Process • Asked ourselves what and how do we define “success” • Engaged over 500 students, faculty and staff in the process • Developed a model that was inclusive of the many facets of success

    11. Sheridan’s Definition OfStudent Success

    12. Sheridan recognizes that Student Success is unique to each individual student. Our shared definition encompasses the following:

    18. An Expanded Definition

    19. Rationale for Expanded Definition • Retains integrity of multifaceted individualized definition • Reflects the MACRO (versus Micro) facilitators of Student Success • Interdependence to Academic Excellence

    20. Operationalizing our definition of Student Success • Engaging the entire Sheridan Community – Academic, Institutional & Student Base

    21. Operationalizing our definition of Student Success • Student Success … • alense through which to examine challenges and opportunities • a common shared value
