Student Engagement Communication: FYE will convene a staff and student committee to identify student newsworthy activities and the best way to disseminate information to students. A freshmen student activities survey will help the SSP office to “target” market activities to self-identified populations. This will help with CCI and other retention initiatives. Objective 1D
Freshmen Student Involvement and Engagement Survey: A survey designed to gather student specific information regarding their interests, communication preferences, and feelings about college (concern/excitement). Objective 1A, 1D
Student Planning: A web-based program designed to help students create an academic plan, correspond with advisors and register for courses. This tool will allow for clear academic direction for students as well as more focused time for advisors to discuss professional and life goals. Objective 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D
First Year Seminar Pilot Course - SD 192: FYE will support the development and deployment of a First Year Seminar course that will help students better identify and navigate LCSC resources which lead to student success, retention and degree completion. Objective 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D
SHS/SCC staff trained in a 15 months, quality improvement, collaborative process regarding the treatment and follow up care of students with depression.
Improved screening for depression by both SHS/SCC with the goal of serving at least 75 students through this program (Likely many more)
Student’s positive for depressive symptoms in primary care (SHS) setting will receive follow up “care management” services through SCC as well as SHS offices.
Will ultimately provide “evidence based,” “research informed” treatment of depression.
Will give our offices a format for caring for additional problems in a similar fashion;
Ultimately, the follow up, “care management” component will lead to better outcomes (less depression); less depression leads to better academic performance, increased student success.
Assist SHS/SCC to document success rates/contribution to overall LCSC retention efforts.
Step UP LCSC Program Key Components: Objective 1F
Pro social, bystander training adaptable to a myriad of campus wide needs/concerns/issues to increase student safety and responsibility.
“Vehicle” to incorporate several educational and training needs to all members of the campus community.
“Best practice” standard for raising awareness and affecting positive, pro-social change on college campuses.
Student Support Network – Peer Advocacy Training Program Key Components: Objective 1F
Key students will be identified and/or recruited primarily through one of the helping professional programs (Psych, BSW, CJ, Social Sciences, Kinesiology, etc) who would agree to Student Support Network Training provided by SCC staff and Security as part of a program internship/practicum experience.
Students will learn how to connect with others, gain knowledge and skill to effectively intervene with others (within their ability) others, and advocacy skills to learn to advocate for others as necessary.
As part of the internship/practicum experience these students will then participate in a campus rotational system to provide peer advocacy services as necessary for students in need/crisis or as requested by LCSC administration.
