Cultivating Generative Connections, Commitment, and Engagement among Campus Constituencies: A Practice Brief Based on BEAMS Project Outcomes
Symonette, Hazel
Institute for Higher Education Policy
This practice brief is one of a series highlighting schools' successful practices during the Building Engagement and Attainment for Minority Students (BEAMS) project's five years of data collection and action plan implementation. These briefs accompany a monograph that details the process BEAMS institutions used to craft and implement data-driven action plans to improve student success. The practice brief series outlines effective practices that can be replicated in postsecondary institutions interested in pursuing data-based change and increasing student engagement, learning, and success. This brief shows how creating campus connections and garnering faculty, staff, and student buy-in can facilitate action plan implementation and ultimately result in increased student engagement and success.
