Retention Alert Form
The Retention & Persistence Committee invites you to begin using this Retention Alert Form to communicate your retention concerns about students.
Only a user logged into our domain (eureka.edu) can submit an alert via this form. Once the form is submitted, the user receives a verification email back, including a summary of their responses.
The responses are automatically logged into a Google Doc spreadsheet, which only the members of the Retention & Persistence Committee can access. In addition to the responses, the spreadsheet also logs the timestamp of the submission, and the domain username (email address) of the person submitting the form. Members of the committee get an email alert the moment a new submission is made.
We want your feedback about this new method for reporting your retention concerns about students. Email or call Scott Wignall (x6302) with any questions or ideas about this system.

Faculty/Staff First-Year Seminar panel discussion
On Wednesday, November 12, from 12–12:50, Jessica Barr be leading a panel discussion for First-Year Seminar students entitled, “Is Studying Abroad for Me?” The purpose of the panel is for faculty and staff who spent some time abroad while they were in college to discuss their experiences—and, most importantly, how these experiences affected their personal and professional lives.
This panel is seen as a complement to the Summer Experience Symposium, which is an opportunity for students to share their recent experiences. The faculty/staff panel will show students how these undergraduate experiences can have a powerful impact on them even decades later.
If you would be interested in serving on this panel, please contact Jessica Barr.
