Faculty Partner Expectations

students and faculty talking

Relationships within the Student Success Network (SSN) will take on many different forms. They will be as unique and varied as the personalities and stories of each student within the program. Regardless, it will require active listening and assessment of how best to facilitate the specific goals of the student. It may be as advocate, role model, coach. Students should trust their partner and feel safe to share openly and honestly. This is the core of building a constructive relationship with the student.
