The Blue Hen Success Collaborative is exactly that – a collaboration of faculty, staff and academic leadership who have come together to collectively and strategically work towards improving student success at UD.
The BHSC Leadership Team has been meeting since 2016 to discuss the utilization and implementation of EAB’s Student Success Collaborative – Campus platform at UD. Now appropriately-named the Blue Hen Success Collaborative (BHSC), the Leadership Team meets regularly to discuss details surrounding the BHSC and has been a strategic voice in operational decisions and long-term vision for the collaborative. While the Leadership Team will evolve over time, the original members included representatives from all colleges including Pat Walsh, Michael Vaughn, Pat Shields, Cindi Shenkle, Todd Royer, Marcia Rollison, John Pelesko, Keeley Powell, Laurie Palmer, Jeff Palmer, Lynn Okagaki, Naomi Nash, Chris Lucier, Lesa Griffiths, Nina Buchanan and Liz Bayley.
BHSC Specialists are individuals selected to represent their college and/or respective offices as “Super Users.” BHSC Specialists may still be learning certain aspects of the platform but have additional experience navigating the site. The Leadership Team look to these Super Users for feedback about the platform. Talk with your campus colleagues about their experiences within the Blue Hen Success Collaborative and how they envision leveraging the platform in their work to support students!
