IN THE WORKS
Matriculation is working with instructional faculty, Counseling, and the Office of Institutional Research to develop two new programs. By summer of 2008, we will implement an intervention program to identify high risk students who place in Basic Skills courses and work with them to substantially increase their probability of academic success.
The development of the Virtual Learning Lab and the faculty designed tutorial will continue over the 2008-9 academic year.
