Early Alert

The Early Alert Program helps students understand their progress in courses by week 5 of the semester. Once students receive their Early Alert grades, they can begin seeking assistance and changing approaches to courses well before mid-semester.

Teacher Recognition:

Promoting Intellectual Engagement (PIE) Award

This award honors instructors who inspire excitement, inquiry, and autonomy in first-year courses.  Recipients of the PIE Award are nominated on-line by sophomore students, and then selected by a committee.  Student's descriptions of nominees reveal the heart of excellence in lower-division instruction, courses that comprise the foundation of students' college experience and the crucial seed of intellectual self-awareness.
