Everyone has a role in student success at SUNY Broome.
Helping our students be successful is a team effort. Depending on your role within the institution, however, you will likely have very specific priorities and goals in mind when you think about how best to support your students. Starfish works with all members of our institution to address their specific needs. Overall, the vision of Starfish is to help students succeed and graduate. It is an easy to use tool with a great user interface that gives faculty, students, and staff the opportunity to connect on another level. This powerful retention tool has improved student persistence in community colleges across the country.
Starfish was introduced at SUNY Broome in the Spring of 2015 as a communication tool that helps promote engagement that improves student outcomes. We are leveraging two components to help with student retention.
