We will share some of the lessons we have learned and some creative ways we are now using the system to help enhance our student success outreach efforts.

High Impact Practices: Starfish as a Pillar for Campus Collaboration and Change

This session will review how Starfish has served as a major catalyst for structural and cultural changes in student success at Rowan University. Since adopting Starfish in 2012, Rowan University has promoted consistent use across campus, including increasing faculty participation from 22% to over 90%. Attendees will learn about how Starfish is used for connecting campus, tracking and monitoring student participation and progress, and empowering students to access various campus supports. Importantly, campus change was intertwined with Starfish's implementation as Rowan built a large Student Success team to connect myriad offices and services, including a centralized professional advising model. Increased graduation rates, including for students from underserved populations, have resulted. A review of future initiatives will also be explored during this session.

Changing Campus Culture: Supporting Sustainability of Starfish

The integration of Starfish Early Alerts demands campus willingness to engage in candid institutional self-reflection. Sustaining this integration requires engagement and active support from all layers of the organizational structure. Through this process, campuses must identify how Starfish impacts campus policies, procedures, and workflows to ultimately enhance the processes that influence student success. In this session, representatives from multiple campuses within the State University of New York System will explain how they have approached this challenge and turned it into an opportunity to encourage intra-campus collaboration.

Reframing Retention

Starfish is a great tool to use for retention purposes, and utilization can be increased by reframing this as a shared responsibility across campus. Truckee Meadows Community College increased faculty buy-in by setting up standard procedures for personnel who answer flags and helping faculty understand what to expect from the process. Starfish usage has moved from reactive to intentional.

It's All About Re-Framing: From Student Retention to Student Engagement

Kudos to Positive Psychology

After exploring the importance of positive psychology and the effect it has on traditional college-aged students, we feel that there is a strong case to be made for the power of kudos in Starfish.

Navigating Complexity, Influencing Culture Change: Practical insights from a large institution’s implementation and expansion of Starfish

The implementation of Starfish at Penn State was the beginning of an ongoing process of refinement and expansion that has influenced and is influenced by the university’s growing culture of student success. Three years ago, in close consultation with our Hobsons consultant, Penn State implemented Starfish for the entire university. Though focused on a limited set of priorities, the initial success created momentum for collaboration across a complex institution that is driving grass-roots desire for broader participation and is improving consistency and quality of advising. In this session, members of the Starfish team at Penn State along with our Hobsons consultant will share insights about institutional factors that contributed to the current success of Starfish as well as strategies that helped to build political capital to affect large-scale impact using limited resources.

Bringing your Analytics Platform to the Forefront: Implementation Strategies & Practices

Institutions are shifting their priorities from simply getting students on campus, to keeping students on campus. Student success, advising and retention initiatives are becoming the focus of campus strategic planning. In an effort to scale academic advising and core student success practices, the University of Missouri integrated Starfish Analytics at the campus and academic unit levels. This session will share steps taken at the University of Missouri to provide Starfish Analytics strategic tools (student explorer & course explorer) and operational tools (operational retention score and score details), identify target courses and student groups, and applied intervention strategies on their campus.

What Keeps Us Up at Night? …The Needle Barely Moved!!!

Syracuse University implemented Starfish as Orange SUccess in fall 2016. Despite having three years of data, and breaking through cultural barriers to successfully implement the early alert and connect tool, we continue to struggle to get our stakeholders to understand and respect the complexity of retention issues and appreciate that long term results takes time. In this session we’ll share our journey focusing on the more immediate outcomes, such as student engagement with advising, to demonstrate effectiveness. We have numerous Orange stories to demonstrate the effectiveness of the system.
