Success by Design

Throughout this semester, I will be highlighting a number of student success initiatives championed by faculty and staff. As you know, our culture thrives on both “all-points leadership” and the notion that innovation resides throughout the college. Today, I want to share with you the good work of the Success by Design team led by professor Cynthia Diefert and her team. Below is a brief summary prepared by Cynthia. 

 Last May, Success by Design launched a repository of resources in a Canvas course for faculty and staff. Topics include Best Practices for the Online Environment, COVID-19 Related Information, Disability Resources, Diversity & Inclusion, Graphic Organizers, Math Test Anxiety and Test Preparation, and Note Taking. Faculty and staff are still able to self enroll here: 

 Success by Design continues our commitment to this work and are asking faculty and staff to give their feedback in a short survey, so we may curate or create resources that are of benefit to them:

As we work together to further student success at PVCC, I encourage you to engage with the resources provided through Success by Design.
