Early Intervention Program

WSU uses a retention tool called the Early Intervention program or EIP. This program helps identify struggling students and provide them with the resources they need to be successful. 

This program helps reach retention goals because Generation Z students want interaction, and they want lots of information. But they are not always good at asking for information or help, especially in-person. 

They thrive in an environment where a professor and/or advisor makes something “mandatory.” In other words, if you tell them that something is necessary for class, or something is necessary for success, they tend to do it.

Generation Z students also prefer a “co-existing” culture. When students see teaching faculty who care enough to involve other campus contact points, it becomes clear how much we care about student success at WSU. 

The EIP allows faculty & supplemental advisors to intervene early enough to make a difference in a student’s success academically and remaining at the university.

How EIP Works 

Teaching faculty receive an email directing them to WarriorSpace where they can report on any student in any of their courses that they have academic concerns such as missing classes, not doing assignments, poor test/quiz results, not understanding course materials and more. 

Once a report is submitted, comments and concerns will be forwarded to the students’ assigned academic advisor and any other supplemental advisors that the student may be connected to (Warrior Success Center, Athletics, Housing and Residential Life, Inclusion and Diversity, TRIO, etc.) for further follow up with the student.

This follow up is completed through a form on WarriorSpace where faculty get information on the student and can see what outreach has been done already.
