Summary of the P.A.S.S. Program (Project Assuring Student Success), Mercy College of Northwest Ohio.
Harter, James L.
The paper describes an academic support program at Mercy College of Northwest Ohio. The Project Assuring Student Success (PASS) Program is multi-faceted and comprehensive, designed to help students find success in their academic endeavors. The first phase of this program was the development and implementation of the Student Success Center. Some of the services provided at the Student Success Center are skills development programs in areas such as time management, stress management, and study habits. Services provided through the center have been funded, in part, by grants from a local foundation and also a local hospital auxiliary group. During the second phase of this program, a faculty development series was implemented. Various workshops were presented, including teaching methods and styles, retention and academic advising, and working with learning disabled students. The final phase was the development and implementation of the Remedial Education Addressing Collegiate Hurdles (REACH) Program, which provides classes in basic reading, writing, and mathematics. Another component of REACH is a faculty-guided mentoring program. According to this report, prior to implementing the PASS Program, the college's retention rate had dropped to 82 percent. It is now 89 percent. (JA)
