Jennifer Johnson (Associate Professor of English Education), Molly Mande (Supplemental Instruction Coordinator in the writing center), Kyle Falbo (lecturer in Computer Science), Kathryn Atwood (research analyst in the Office of Institutional Effectiveness) and Jennifer Whiles Lillig (Associate Dean of Academic Programs) have received a new award, Building Transformational Cultures of Data Use for Student Success in the amount of $30,000. 

An interdisciplinary team of faculty and staff will be creating workshops and guides to support faculty in accessing, interpreting, and using disaggregated student success data. This data will be obtained primarily from the CSU Course Equity Portal, the CSU Student Success Dashboard, and Canvas analytics. This is part of larger work by the SSU Middle Leadership Academy that focuses on creating a series of professional growth opportunities for SSU faculty to increase course pass rates and eliminate equity gaps. This work stems from GI2025 and Equity Priority #5 from the CSU Chancellor's Office.

The sponsor for this award is the Trustees of the California State University/The Lumina Foundation for Education, Inc.
