Measure 1

2019 Status
Achieved
Each measure but the passing courses at mid-term, which is equal, the on campus data is more positive than for those living off campus. HRL strives to provide an on campus living experience that has educational value and connection to GVSU as a whole. There is a concentrated effort in working with first-year students to get them to their second year and this data recognizes the difference living on campus has (on-85.8% return to SY and off-72% do). These measures can be connected to the enhanced experiences that our staff provide to students living on campus, including the connections that the students have with RA (peer mentors), staff and faculty at the university.

We continue to meet 100% of the requests we receive with placements. The limited information that we can look at is our requests from the 2018-2019 year and comparative information that we have to the 2019-2020 thus far. We have seen a double in the requests for GIH to this point. We believe that this number will continue to grow and our system is set up to be able to approve and place all requests.
