READY SET SUCCEED!

Ready, Set, Succeed! provides a framework and focus for students that are not yet college ready to begin to know themselves by strengthening their self-efficacy, preparing themselves by understanding how they learn best, and using those strategies to persist and complete their academic goals. These areas will be explored as part of small learning communities, or neighborhoods, which will include faculty mentors and learning support specialists, who will be success coaches.

NEIGHBORHOODS FOR SUCCESS (N4S)

The implementation of the QEP will begin in Fall 2017 with pilot of a small sample of students, representing two campuses, the St. Petersburg Gibbs campus and Clearwater campus. The students will engage with others in their neighborhood with face-to-face meetings and on-campus events, as well as online modules in a MyCourses course shell.

As part of a N4S, students will demonstrate mastery in each of the learning outcomes through collaborative hands-on activities, participation in neighborhood events, and thoughtful discussion and assignment completion. Collaboration with Faculty Leaders and Success Coaches through participation in their N4S will further enhance student learning by helping students develop their confidence in learning and allowing them to identify the learning strategies that work best for them.

During the 2018-2019 academic year, the Neighborhoods for Success expanded to include an online section, in addition to the face-to-face sections at the Clearwater and Gibbs campuses. Students engaged in weekly meetings during the fall semester and bi-weekly meetings during the spring semester, as well as on-campus events and online modules in a MyCourses course shell. A champion advisor and peer mentor were added to the neighbors to help support the students.

The program will be available on six campuses starting the 2019-2020 academic year: Tarpon Springs, Clearwater, Seminole, Gibbs, Downtown, and Online.

Students attend a Welcome Event the week before the fall semester. College wide events include Off On the Right Foot (second Friday of the fall semester) and Keep It Going! (approximately week ten of the fall semester). The final celebration event for the N4S students, to celebrate their successful completion of the program and first year at SPC, is Let’s Do This! (approximately week fourteen of the spring semester).
