  • Provost Winebrake introduced the event and gave his remarks about the start of the semester. 
  • Amanda Fleming, University Registrar, reported fall-to-fall comparison data from the Registrar's Office to set a baseline of how our students are doing. 
  • Paul Cole, Director of Assessment, Research, and Planning for Student Affairs, shared the findings from Student Affairs and University College's First-Year Survey and showed how faculty and staff can access that data through a new dashboard. 
  • Andy Mauk, Associate Provost for Institutional Research and Planning, offered insight into students' perceptions of each modality and an update on future equity data. 
  • Paul Townend, Associate Vice Chancellor and Dean of Undergraduate Studies, and Christine Pesetski, Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Studies and Director of University College, presented practical ways that faculty and advisors can engage students in this moment and connect students with campus support systems. 
  • The Center for Teaching Excellence provided resources, strategies, and opportunities for faculty to use these data sets to improve and support student learning and success. In addition, offered some ideas about how we can help our students contend with an unstable political landscape along with the challenges of the pandemic

Thanks in large part to the strenuous efforts of our faculty and staff, the overall message of the session and the data it presents is very positive, as UNCW and our students are doing remarkably well during this time.
