Student Success and Engagement Team

(SSET) Mission Statement

The Student Success and Engagement Team (SSET) is charged with supporting students academic well-being, academic engagement, and student belonging. The SSET aims to encourage a help-seeking culture among students to develop resilience, support achievement, and self-advocacy among students and helps develop and execute support plans for students. Faculty and staff will utilize the same form used to report to CARE Team

How is SSET different than CARE Team?

SSET works parallel with CARE Team; the chair of SSET is a CARE Team member. CARE’s focus is on concerning behavior, threats to self, and threats to others, while SSET’s focus is situated more with academic success, skills, and supports. The teams collaborate with one another as needed. Faculty, staff, and students who engage CARE and SSET do not need to determine which form to use; these teams share one form and determine internally how to direct reports.

SSET Vision Statement

SSET takes a collaborative approach to supporting student success. Reports will be received, considered, acted upon, and followed up on within a timely matter. The team will create care plans for students that consider tutoring, success coaching, mentoring, counseling, and other campus resources that support personal and professional success.
