Say Hello to SPARC!

Success. Progression. Achieve. Retention. Completion. Meet SPARC.  

Starting with a beta testing phase in Fall 2019 and leading to full implementation in Fall 2020, the goal is to improve progression, retention, and completion of students enrolled in targeted courses. Faculty will partner with success coaches to positively impact student success. 

The launch of Aviso, an early alert system, in late Fall 2019, is further expected to contribute to increased student success. Aviso prioritizes students at risk, identifies intervention opportunities and quickly informs faculty and success coaches. 

SPARC is a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) that grew out of RCC’s retention needs and will provide additional opportunities for growth. RCC developed the QEP topic through a parallel planning process that included faculty and staff input as well as institutional data.
