• Diane Alexander and I joined C.A.P.S. 10/1/2007
• Hedda Bunting’s first day was 10/15/2007
• October was spent developing procedures, organizing, ordering supplies, getting equipment in place, and developing relationships with the personnel in SER
• Organization of data and student services are constantly revisited and refined
• From July through October, approximately 160 students received services through C.A.P.S. As of today, we have served 208 students during the month of November. That comes to a total of 368 students served .*
• I have met with 12 of the Program Chairs to discuss their curriculums. I am in the process of following up with those who didn’t respond to the initial email to schedule a time to meet with them.
• We see all new students as well as currently enrolled students who have questions about other programs.
• Many of our new students are threatened by the registration process. Part of our approach is to clarify that process, break it down into very manageable steps, and thereby make it nonthreatening to them. We also encourage them to come back to C.A.P.S. at any point during their college career if they have questions and don’t know who to ask.
