FYE Success Series for Faculty

The Success Series presents information on topics to promote student success and/or help them avoid problems that many students face in their first year. FYE and the campus departments who sponsor the series seek out presenters who deliver the desired message in a manner that holds student interest while also not “preaching” to them (at least overtly). The series, in conjunction with FYE created reflection exercises in Folio, provides one way for faculty to address Student Learning Outcome 2.

2018 FYE Success Series

If you choose for students to complete the Engagement Task List within the Campus and Community Engagement module, students are required to attend two Success Series events. Following the Success Series events, students must choose one topic to engage with further by choosing one of the follow up actions listed under the event title (these actions will be available soon). Using the Engagement Task List, students will also be required to interact with at least two campus or community partners who can help students engage further with their selected topic.

If you are not using the Engagement Task List, FYE strongly recommends requiring attendance at a minimum of two events. While some faculty will require attendance at specific events, the most common way that faculty use the series is to provide students at least some measure of choice in which events to attend.

Although we feel confident that all details are correct, it’s a good idea to point students to the website for exact days and times, because it will always be as up-to-date as possible.
