Academic Success Initiatives

The Office of Academic Success Initiatives exists to help CWU students with academic problems, conflicts, or concerns. The Director serves as a non-legal "ombudsman" to hear complaints, coach aggrieved students in effective conflict resolution communication, and, when necessary, mediate to help students and faculty arrive at fair and sustainable solutions.The Director also facilitates the academic appeal process, the academic early alert system, and a quarterly academic warning and probation recovery program, as well as other Academic Success special projects. Additionally, the Director of Academic Success Initiatives collaborates with Faculty Senate, advises the Student Academic Senate, and meets with individual students facing academic challenges.
