Miscellaneous
7.) Retention initiative — Warn students early with SAGE
REACH is encouraging all faculty teaching 100–200 courses to use SAGE to aid students experiencing academic or personal difficulties. SAGE is an early warning system that allows faculty to instantly schedule via email instructor meetings and to recommend tutoring and/or advising to a single student or large groups of students in academic need. Students that receive SAGE referrals early in the semester are more likely to pass their courses than those referred during or after midterms.
