In order to identify and support at-risk students, the Sophomore Year Initiative (SYI) introduced the S.T.E.A.R. System to Lehman College as a possible solution. The S.T.E.A.R. System is a web-based, early intervention, retention module that identifies at-risk students within the first 6 weeks of the semester. This presentation examines the strategies utilized and the existing approaches the Lehman Title V SYI program has championed to providing increased support to “at-risk” students. The presentation provides details that highlight collaboration through faculty engagement, referral process and follow-up procedures.
