Student Success Team


  • Identify cultural and institutional conditions that influence student academic achievement, particularly retention.
  • Identify, recommend, and assess best practices.
  • Communicate these strategies to the Appalachian community.

The success and persistence of our students is a campus-wide responsibility. Retention and graduation are performance indicators and an index of our effectiveness in teaching and assisting in the personal development of our students. These performance indicators are also utilized by the UNC General Administration in the new performance funding model.
