Student Success Framework

OSU fosters student success through a proactive approach that supports the whole student. IRA collects, analyzes, and distributes data regarding student activities in order to provide campus partners with tools to evaluate the effectiveness of their programs and interventions. 
A circle with the text "Student Success" has colorful circles branching off with the following captions: "Academic Achievement," "Satisfaction," "Acquisition of Skills & Competencies," "Physical & Mental Wellness," "Attainment of Learning Outcomes," "Career Preparation," and "Persistence." It is modified from York, Gibson, & Rankin (2015) Operationalized Model of Academic Success
