Student Success and Engagement Team
(SSET) Mission Statement
The Student Success and Engagement Team (SSET) is a campus-wide team that provides a supportive and coordinated approach to students identified by faculty and staff as needing support toward their personal and professional success. The SSET aims to encourage resilience, 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.
