Established in Fall 2006, the QuickConnect program is an early warning and intervention system focused on new first-year students. The program is modeled on using class absences and other instructor concerns as prompts to contact students who may be struggling during the semester. The goals of QuickConnect include promoting responsible class attendance and providing one-to-one intervention to connect students with resources pertinent to their individual needs.
All instructors may participate in QuickConnect by referring students for intervention based upon concerns, both academic and non-academic. The “Faculty Referral Form” from QuickConnect’s home page includes a drop down providing a complete class list which allows you to submit the students name and reasons for referral. The student will then be contacted by a trained “Responder” who will secure resources pertinent to the student’s current need. Instructors will be informed of the outcome of the “connection.”
