[448] Student Success/Budget Meetings open to the University community

The meetings will be held later this month, with the complete schedule below. 

At these meetings, each college dean will highlight accomplishments in pursuing the goals of the University’s Quest for Student Success initiative and the status of the implementation of the goals. Also, as part of these meetings, deans will present their budget requests for the coming academic year and these funding requests should directly connect to the student success plan. 

Launched in 2013, the Quest for Student Success lays out plans to innovate for increased student success in three key areas:
•        Recruiting students who value academic success;
•        Enhancing the academic experience for students by implementing innovation in curriculum across all disciplines and underscoring the role of quality advising in student success; and
•        Championing enhancements in administrative processes and eliminating barriers to student success.

The ultimate goal is to increase student retention and graduation rates in line with Gov. Bill Haslam’s Drive to 55 initiative, which aims to increase the number of Tennesseans with a certificate or degree beyond high school.

These Student Success/Budget Request meetings will be held April 25-27 in the Student Union Ballroom and are open to the public. Audience seating will be available. The schedule is as follows:
