Students in full-semester classes are viewing Progress Reports this week through EKU Direct. Faculty can view Progress Reports for all of their students through EKU Direct. Click the Faculty Services tab and click Check Progress Reports. One word from you to a student you have gotten to know about an unsatisfactory report can make a lot of difference. Encourage students to connect with you or their other instructors during student (office) hours. Encourage a visit to the Student Success Center, the Noel Studio, the Math Tutoring Center, the Center for Student Accessibility, or the Counseling Center. Some students who receive negative feedback, like an Unsatisfactory Progress Report, will feel motivated to change; others will feel isolated and alone. Let them know help is available. You will build trust, help them turn things around, and show them they have support.
