The Seven Cs for Embedding Student Success: A Toolkit for Higher Education Institutions (Seven Cs Toolkit) has been developed as a resource for higher education institutions (HEIs).
Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it
It outlines a systematic process for embedding the continuous enhancement of student success. It includes resources to enable institutions to take stock of how student success is currently embedded in their institution, and to identify what currently works well and what needs to be developed further. It challenges institutions to consider the impact of all potential policies, practices and actions on all staff and students. It encourages conversations, debates and planning of how best to embed student success in a sustainable way across all functional areas of the institution.
The toolkit identifies a process for embedding student success revolving around Seven Cs: Commit, Collaborate, Community, Consensus, Communicate, Connect and Continuing.
