If your student had a less than successful fall semester and has been placed on academic probation, he or she should have received two letters over the break: one from the Provost outlining what needs to be done to get back on track and one from the EPC indicating the name and contact information of a Planning Advisor who has been assigned to help navigate through the specific challenges facing students in this situation. The Planning Advisor is in addition to the Academic Advisor and is meant to provide added support and guidance while students rebuild their GPAs and connect appropriately to resources on campus.
As our world faces increasingly divisive issues and messages, it’s important for us to come together as a community to reaffirm our core values and principles, especially in support of those who may be marginalized. Click on the icon below and encourage your student to join in for as many of these activities as possible. (If you’re in the area and would like to join in, as well, please contact University Life at 610.796.8211 for more information.)
