NDC Launches Student Success Center

As one academic year approaches its conclusion, Notre Dame College (NDC) has already begun to plan for improved student success during the 2010-11 academic year and beyond. In order to improve retention, graduation rates and overall student satisfaction, the College has created the Student Success Center.

Notre Dame's new Student Success Center strives to maximize individual success.This exciting initiative focuses the College’s ongoing efforts to improve its service to students. It builds on recent successful accreditation visits in both nursing and education, the anticipated move to NCAA Division II for its student athletes, and the faculty’s ongoing efforts to enhance the core curriculum.

The Student Success Center combines academic support, advising and proactive retention efforts into one area. It will combine already successful entities like the Dwyer Learning Center and the Advising Center, and add a director responsible for coordinating these existing support programs.

“The No. 1 job for the Student Success Center will be to work with all of the College’s constituencies – faculty, student life staff, coaches and administrators – to maximize the number of students who persist from initial enrollment to graduation,” said Dr. Andrew P. Roth, president of Notre Dame College.

After an extensive search, the best person to lead this new initiative was discovered right on campus. Former Associate Director of Admissions Katie McMahon has accepted the position as director of the Student Success Center. She will manage all matters dealing with retention and student success.

Notre Dame College is located at 4545 College Road in South Euclid. For further information contact Brian Johnston, chief communications officer, at 216.373.5252 or bjohnston@ndc.edu.
