Resources

Cross-institutional Collaboration

STAR program staff coordinate and collaborate with key faculty, staff, and administrators across CWU. These collaborations are needed not only to facilitate student success, but also to plan and implement early intervention for struggling STAR students.

STAR staff routinely work closely with the offices of Center for Disability Services (CDS), The David Wayne Coon Center for Excellence in Leadership (CEL), The Center for Student Empowerment, and the academic departments and faculty across campus, just to name a few.

Peer Mentoring program collaboration with Student Services offices across campus.
