Starfish Student Success Portal Early Term Progress Assessments Now Open
The Summer 2019 Early Term Progress Survey launched last week and will remain open until Monday, June 24, at 11 p.m. CDT.
Remember, raising concerns (flags) or positive feedback (kudos) early is helpful for students and gives them opportunities to achieve success. So, please complete your surveys during the 10-day window – even if you have no feedback to submit.
Over the last eight periods, our highest completion rate has been 42 percent. Please help us hit 100 percent completion for the Summer Term.
Questions? Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
, or access the resources available at http://www.webster.edu/success, which includes a detailed Progress Survey FAQ section and a two-minute video on how to complete a Progress Survey.

University Looks to Enhance Webster Works World-Wide Day of Service Event
Task forces are now being established to help the university review the program and determine how additional “service-learning,” or “community-based” activities can be incorporated. Two task forces are being established to explore opportunities. The first, the University Volunteerism Task Force, will explore how students, faculty and staff can give back to the community.
A second group, the Service-Learning Task Force, will conduct an inventory of service-learning activities that are imbedded in courses and explore how to promote them to current and prospective students.
