12 Engagement within the University Learning Community Engagement within the University community is fundamental to student success. Supportive learning and social communities form to accomplish various purposes. It is through these learning community affiliations that students can experience a sense of belonging and receive support needed for their success. Affiliations can also provide identity anchors and serve as the impetus for practicing communication, critical thinking, leadership and cultural competency skills. Develop Leadership, Citizenship, Diverse and Global Perspectives As educated people, students have the social responsibility to assume leadership roles when needed. Because of this responsibility, students must have opportunities to develop and refine their abilities to participate fully as leaders and citizens. Leadership experiences also allow students to consider diverse and global perspectives. Diverse relationships in the learning environment contribute to improvements in a students' ability to engage in more complex thinking and act with an appreciation of difference and social justice issues. Academic and Career Success The academic experience is at the core of a student’s life. Students often judge their success at the University by their academic and career achievements. Academic and career support includes those specifically cultivated relationships with faculty, career development programs and academic advising services that increase the likelihood that students will realize their academic and career goals. Services also include accommodations for disabilities, academic support, tutoring, academic skill building, and educational equity enhancement programs. Pathways to and into the University Pathways to the University include those programs, services and activities that increase the likelihood that a potential student will enroll and successfully transition to university life. It includes the articulation of a mission-aligned enrollment management plan, sustained financial resources for students, pre- college programs and effective CC partnerships. This also includes outreach to industry and local communities. Strong pathways also include student transition programs such as campus visits, new student orientation, first year student support, and family outreach to assist a student during the matriculation or return to the university. PSU & Student Affairs Thematic Priorities Healthy Living Practices Health is directly related to student success. Healthy living means developing and sustaining wellness with regard to the psychological, social, spiritual, physical, intellectual, cultural and interpersonal dimensions of one’s life.
