Current Progress

Current Progress (as of start of Spring quarter 2020)

  • The Integrated Student Supports (ISS) Collective will meet on a quarterly basis to bring campus partners together in the spirit of increasing communication, collaboration and building capacity. They will meet today from 1pm–3pm in N201. All are welcome to attend.
  • BC was awarded a highly competitive Department of Education Title III Strengthening Institutions Grant to focus on Student Success.
  • An intake form to connect students proactively to services has been completed by over 100 students for winter 2020 and will continue scale up.
  • The BC Pathways workgroup finalized the BC Pathways. Faculty are creating discipline-specific course maps which are due in February.  Here is a short video from the SBCTC for more information about Pathways.
  • The First Year Seminar (FYS) is a student success course designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills to achieve their long-term goals.  The course curriculum proposal was submitted to the Curriculum Advisory Committee.  The faculty training is being developed and the application process will be released by the end of the winter quarter.
  • The Faculty Professional Development (FPD) Workgroup is investigating high impact practices through the Faculty Commons “High 5 Next Steps” Learning Community this year. If you are a faculty member who has taken High 5 and would like to participate in the faculty research project, contact the Faculty Commons.
  •  TargetX (BC’s customer relationship management system) implementation Phase One was completed in fall quarter and is on target for an all campus rollout in fall 2020.
  • ATD is working with the Council for Inclusion and Diversity to improve the communication of disaggregated student success data by race and ethnicity categories.
  • In December, ATD held a retreat to clarify how and when BC will ensure every student receives the supports they need to succeed. We used the Bulldog Trail created by Dr. B (AVP of Student Affairs) to determine at what point in a student’s life cycle they obtain various supports and interventions: advising, orientation, first-year seminar, etc.
