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.
