Overview

The Student Retention Team is responsible for managing Wright State University’s early alert system, where faculty indicate the students who are potentially at risk throughout the semester. This early intervention allows the team to optimize resources across campus and provide the right interventions to support students through Wright State's coordinated care network in Student Affairs, Equity and Inclusion, and Student Success.

All students are assigned to one Success Coach based on the alphabet and the first letter of their last name.
