Description

Transitioning from high school to college presents new academic challenges for many students. Mapworks data collected by Iowa State University shows that only 30.1% of students have high academic self-efficacy when beginning their first year at Iowa State. The objective of this project was to promote academic success in the residence halls by creating a collaboration between the Department of Residence (DOR) and the Academic Success Center (ASC). This project utilized the DOR’s Living, Learning, Leading (LLL) Model as a framework for explaining the ways in which Community Advisers can utilize resources from the ASC to meet the academic needs of students living in the residence halls. The most pertinent resources from the ASC were linked to a corresponding LLL competency and presented to Community Advisers through a training presentation. Additionally, a bulletin board layout was created to highlight important academic resources and allow Community Advisers to increase residents’ academic resource knowledge through passive programming. The products of this project can be utilized in the future by the DOR and ASC to continually promote academic success in the residence halls.
