Many SSPBT members term has ended and we are currently looking for replacements for those who did not continue. Just a brief orientation today. One of the main goals of these meetings is to share information and then bring back feedback to the group. The team comes together to work on problems and take care of items that need to be resolved.
Student Success Support Program
Reviewed and discussed draft of SSSP Report.
Members volunteered to provide leadership and develop plans on how to implement core
components of the the SSSP plan. The teams will develop working groups with 6-8 members. It
is recommended that these groups include students as well. Each team leader will develop the
mapping process of the implementation and the collection and reporting of clean data.

Continued with overview of SSSP Report. Need to work on capturing data for the various groups
we support; this can lead to more funding.
We may start to meet every week this quarter. If there is no agenda set, then it is recommended that you meet with your individual groups instead.
