Improving the First Year Student Experience

National studies have shown that the first year and particularly the first weeks of the first year are critical to students completing their educational goals. In the past, discussion surrounding student success at Sinclair has tended to focus more on student deficits and less on the systems that influence success. Through this action project, we will study related but often disconnected college systems and programs that have direct effects on the success of entering students and improve and integrate current resources and practices in order to increase new student engagement and support services for entering students.
