Attention to Retention: Using Technology to Support Students
Nick Satterlee ran into a rough patch during his first semester at UND when his grades dropped. Support from UND helped him regain his footing and continue down the road to success.
Nick received a notification that his professor was concerned about his progress in class. The notification came from Starfish, an online student success platform. Starfish has grown into one of UND’s strongest retention devices, and it alerts students to achievements or potential issues at the four-week and eight-week marks of each semester.
