  • identify students needing extra assistance in critical foundational coursework;
  • collaborate with others in a student’s academic support network to enhance the assistance provided to a student;
  • monitor a student’s course enrollment, progress to degree, and advising engagement;
  • suggest pathways to a degree based on the student's academic strengths; and
  • find students who might benefit from targeted academic engagement opportunities on campus.
