Promoting a Culture of Student Success

Have you been wondering how you can help promote a culture of student success at USF? Please join the conversation with Dr. Cheryl Blanco Friday, Feb. 25 from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m in C.W. Young Hall (Joint Military Leadership Center) CWY 206.


The Student Success Council has invited Blanco to visit USF to share the results of her investigation into how other universities are promoting a culture of student success and take stock of the current status of our efforts to promote a culture of student success at USF.


Dr. Blanco is Vice President for Special Projects for the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). As part of her work to oversee special initiatives on college readiness and college completions, Dr. Blanco co-authored a well-known report, “Promoting a Culture of Student Success: How Colleges and Universities are Improving Degree Completion." The report, released in April of 2010, focused on how 15 universities have improved graduation rates and student achievement. Dr. Blanco will also address the broader issues involved in changing the culture. 


The Student Success Task Force had been asked to examine best practices at other universities. This event continues the quest for ideas to promote student success at USF. Each of us has a role to play to promote a culture of student success. What are the important roles to promote a culture of student success at USF? What could your role be?
