What do we know about Class of 2016 bachelor’s degree graduates: A Campus-wide First Destination Survey

The need and demand for evidence of success upon graduation has never been higher. Because of this need, UIC administered a campus-wide First Destination Survey to the Class of 2016 bachelor’s degree graduates. Graduates from eight undergraduate colleges were invited to participate in this initiative. The project is a joint partnership between Career Services, Student Affairs Assessment and the Office of Institutional Research. Come learn about this survey, findings, and insights, as well as participate in a discussion.

****************************************

The VPUA’s Office for Research on Student Success (ORSS) is pleased to announce the next installment of its campus lecture series, showcasing research being carried out across UIC to better understand and ultimately improve the success of UIC students. The ORSS Lecture Series on Student Success Research grew out of the UIC Student Success Initiative, and has the dual purpose of opening a cross-disciplinary dialogue among researchers employing different perspectives and approaches to answer related questions about student success at UIC, and putting that research into the hands of practitioners who can make use of it for the benefit of our students.

For questions, please contact Sue Farruggia, Assistant Vice Provost for Undergraduate Affairs, at spf@uic.edu.

SHARE WITH STUDENTS: Intouch Crisis Hotline Info and Lock-in being conducted tonight 4/21!

With the stress of everyday life and finals on the way, the Counseling Center just wanted to take the time to inform you about the UIC InTouch Crisis Hotline.

Whether it’s regarding anxiety, homework overload, or just personal problems, the Hotline is a free service for anyone that feels like they want to be heard. The Hotline is confidential with the exceptions of immediate harm to yourself/others or neglect/abuse of a child or elderly individual.

This upcoming school year our goal is to reach out to more UIC students. This being said, I would appreciate if you took the time to inform all of your students of this FREE service provided for them. Many professors already incorporate the counseling services in their syllabus, so you are more than welcomed to do so with the Hotline as well. The number for the hotline is 312-996-5535. We are open Sunday through Friday from 6:00 pm to 10:30 pm. Moreover, Friday (April 21, 2016) we are conducting a lock-in, which means we will be open from 6:00 pm-6:00 am. For more information please visit: http://counseling.uic.edu/hotline.shtml.
