College On-Track and Early Warnings of Student Difficulties

Can an on-track indicator be created for college? What are the early signs that students may be at-risk for not persisting and graduating? Dr. Sue Farruggia will present UIC’s studies leading to the development of an on-track indicator and discuss its components. She will also present new research on other early factors associated with students not persisting to their second year and not graduating from college.

The OVPUA’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 [https://studentsuccess.uic.edu/], 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.
