QEP 1 - EABNavigate

Kristen Thompson, Senior Program Coordinator, SSC
Jessie Jones, Digital Content & Event Coordinator, SSC

UAH is dedicated to providing a student-centered experience and has a comprehensive network of support services. However, not all of these services are fully utilized or well-integrated with other services across campus. This can make it difficult for students to connect to what they need. This proposal recommends adopting a customer relationship management (CRM) tool that can meet students’ needs by unifying key services under one technological umbrella so that both residential and commuter students can have better access to existing services.

QEP 2 - Rocket to Retention

Bryan Samuel, VP for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion 

Student drop-out from first-to-second and second-to-third year is a problem for both UAH and its students. To solve this problem, this proposal seeks to institutionalize Rocket to Retention (R2R), a first-year student success intervention that attempts to smooth the transition from high school to college. This intervention would establish strategies to strengthen the connection of UAH students to the relationships, skills, and opportunities they need to be successful.

Early indicators suggest that the pandemic has disrupted many students’ development of skills necessary to succeed in university education. Incoming students often exhibit deficits in organizational and time management skills, which in turn results in increased levels of anxiety and depression. Fortunately, such skills can be developed through innovative instructional strategies and support services. This proposal recommends UAH become a neuroresponsive campus with a classroom culture that responds to evolving student needs.
