Student Success in the Majors

Student Success in the Majors Initiative 2019

Focus on Creating Multidisciplinary Certificates or Minors

The goal of the Student Success in the Majors (SSM) initiative is to involve faculty in the design and redesign of courses or curricular paths to deliver a coherent curriculum that can facilitate student success and timely graduation. SSM funding has been awarded through a competitive process since 2016. Because a theme that emerged from the Academic Master Planning Process was that there was interest in creating innovative multidisciplinary programs, the focus of the SSM awards this year is on the creation of certificates or minors that are multidisciplinary. Some possible programs might include Gaming or Data Analytics.
