Intervention & Academic Recovery
Academic Intervention & Academic Recovery go hand in hand in providing our students with the support to stay on track academically. For our students that fall into academic hardships or as a support system for our Students that come out to our University. Academic Intervention focuses on the retention and successful matriculation of at-risk and vulnerable student populations through mentoring and coaching. The Academic Recovery Program is to retain and return these students to good academic standing. The program is designed to promote effective academic practices and behaviors.

Academic Intervention Program
The Academic Intervention program initiative supports the retention and successful matriculation of at-risk and vulnerable student populations. This effort led by the Academic Intervention/ Retention Specialist would recruit, hire, and train PAC (Peer Academic Coaches) to work one-on-one and in small groups providing intervention services to identified at-risk students.
The Intervention Program at DSU serves students from the time they are prospective students until they have graduated successfully. This office operates under the tenet of “students first.” Our services and activities support student success, intellectual development, and inclusion while assisting our students in achieving their academic, personal, and professional objectives.
Peer Academic Coaches
Our Peer Academic Coaches (PACs) work one-on-one and in small groups providing intervention services to identified at-risk students. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors meeting the requirement for employment of earning a 2.7 or better GPA or better with no major judicial infractions were hired to work with one and one and in small groups with students within each academic college.
What we do as PACs:
- Connect students with Advisors
- Connect students with tutoring and writing resources
- Ensure students are on track with semester milestones (IDP, Registration, Etc)
- Offer study, organization, and time management skills
- Connect students to campus resources such as financial aid, student accounts, records office, etc.
