Approaches that Build Bridges Between Retention and Academic Success Interventions

At CUNY’s Brooklyn College SEEK Program, we serve low-income students with over 60% of the population being underrepresented minorities.  The pandemic semesters helped us to recognize that simply offering resources (tutoring, workshops, and academic advisement) is insufficient. In this session, attendees will get an inside look at how we support the at-risk students by building bridges (academic mentors, progress alerts, and goal mapping) to connect resources and motivate our students so that they thrive academically.
