“Now more than ever, retention, engaged learning, and degree completion are critical to student success,” said Amy Goodburn, senior associate vice chancellor and dean of undergraduate education. “I am excited to see the continued enthusiasm for this program and our faculty’s dedication to the university’s strategic vision that every person and every interaction matters.”

This academic year, the fellows will meet virtually each month to review research literature on factors that impact student success, study the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s institutional data and discuss university initiatives surrounding student success. The fellows will also interact with directors of academic support and engagement units and former fellows who have facilitated student success initiatives in their departments and colleges.
