Transforming Student Success Through Appreciation and Integration Event

On March 17, 2017 the Central Valley hosted a BSSOT event, focusing on integrating efforts between BSSOT, BSI, SSSP, and Equity funding streams. Thank you all who attended from across the Central Valley! Below is some information for you to use.


This workshop focused on integrated planning through the lens of Appreciative Inquiry (AI) to support colleges in aligning their student success initiatives and plans with student learning at the center of the effort.  We encouraged teams that included campus coordinators for Equity, SSSP, BSI and BSSOT as well as any others working on these initiatives on your campus. In addition to AI, the workshop included:

  • updates on new funding formulas
  • cross-campus sharing on BSI and BSSOT efforts and related initiatives
  • an opportunity to work with your college team to integrate your Equity, BSI and SSSP projects
