Student Success Summit: Navigating Student Supports in 2020 and Beyond
We worked with faculty, staff, and students across campus to present the virtual 2020 Student Success Summit.
The Office of Student Academic Success presented its annual 2020 Student Success Summit. This year’s theme is: Navigating Student Supports in 2020 and Beyond. We kicked off the virtual summit with our opening session providing overviews of academic and nonacademic Student Supports in 2020, and the new Single Parent Initiative.

Starfish is the quick and easy way to conveniently identify and track students experiencing academic difficulty, or that may have attendance concerns. Through its flagging capability, Starfish flags streamline the intervention process making it possible for multiple departments to offer assistance to students.
Starfish is not limited to flagging students for academic concerns, but is used at Columbus State for many different functions. Faculty and instructors may use Starfish to provide Kudos, Tutoring and departmental referrals for applicable Columbus State services as needed. Instructors can also use Starfish to record attendance each day or week, and many of the student service departments use Starfish for notes, appointments, and kiosk services.
Starfish also allows instructors to set up office hours for student scheduling to facilitate student appointments. Starfish makes it easy to track your students throughout the semester and provides valuable input for students campus-wide.
