The primary focus of Flight Path is to encourage consistent class attendance by freshmen. Regular class attendance is a major factor in determining the academic success of freshmen. This initiative represents a collaborative effort between multiple offices within, Academic Affairs, Enrollment Management, and Student Services including: departmental faculty, Residential Life, Advisement & Retention Services, and academic support staff. First-year students with documented course absences will receive early intervention contacts from trained members of the Residential Life staff as well as Advisement & Retention Services and other academic support staff members to ensure students are connected with faculty, staff and services specifically allocated to facilitate their success.
