DRS did not have a data base to efficiently track department interactions.
DRS needed a database with the power to provide in-depth, meaningful reports on our daily work serving the college community. This information will help us to work more efficiently.
In Fall 16, the DRS Council purchased DRS Connect, a secure database designed for disability service providers. Data collected from this database allowed us to generate a meaningful end of semester report (attached).
Collection of faculty data consultations reminded us to build frequent communication to increase awareness of our services to faculty and staff.
During the Spring 18 semester, we had 37 coaching sessions with students who need additional support. Our goal is to increase the number of sessions.
- Send an update to the campus community at the beginning of each semeaster.
- Reach out to all first semester students and develop a set of custom emails encouraging students to get in touch with us by phone, by email, or in person.
- Expand coaching services by offering email and phone calls as options.
- Create an end of semester report monitoring change
