At Youngstown State University, the Starfish platform is a user-friendly hub for connecting all the components and programs that inform the university’s strategic student success initiatives. With enthusiastic and wide-spread adoption of the Starfish platform by faculty, advisors, peer mentors, and student success personnel, YSU’s course completion rates have been steadily rising from term to term.
For their efforts, YSU was named a 2014 Starfish 360 Award Winner. In this webinar, the YSU team showcased the ways that their "it takes a village" approach uses technology to coordinate efforts to reach students more effectively. A team of administrators, advisors, faculty,and student peer mentors from YSU shared their Starfish story in June 2015.
