Stella and Charles Guttman Community College, the newest community college in the City University of New York has seen early successes. Their educational model was designed to increase student success with a goal of reaching a 35 percent three-year graduation rate. To put this into perspective the national community college graduation rate is approximately 20 percent!
In a recent webinar, QCC shared its need for a more efficient service to help faculty support their students. Amy Beaudry, Professor of English and Academic Technology Facilitator, Pat Schmohl, Dean of Distance Learning, and Lyssa Walls, Biology Instructor and Online Liaison, discussed the evolution of online communication processes using the Starfish by Hobsons platform. QCC has improved their processes by integrating Starfish into its communication model.
Hobsons is at the National Academic Advising Association’s (NACADA) 40th annual conference in Atlanta, Georgia. Supporting higher education academic advising that enhances student success, NACADA ATL: Advising to Learn conference has more than 3,000 advising professionals attending the conference this year.
Over the last five years, Ramapo College of New Jersey has been intentional with academic advisement and their use of Starfish Early Alert. Using Starfish by Hobsons, Ramapo College of New Jersey created a loop of communication between campus departments, and streamlined its outreach efforts on its campus of 6,000 students to lead more students to succeed in their academics.
