Abstract

The student success course has become a staple of the college experience. As the academic and social environment continues to shift with each new incoming cohort, having a designed and evaluated framework to utilize during student success course development can be a useful tool. Research surrounding student success in college is abundant. Having a framework that draws on this research for setting learning objectives and determining high impact practices for a student success course could assist in current and future curriculum development.

This study focuses on a student success course offered through the College of Education at the University of Kentucky. The course is titled (Educational Policy Studies and Evaluation) EPE 174: The College Student. Utilizing a theory of change approach, this project evaluates EPE 174 as a student success course in accordance with the established framework. As the higher education climate continues to change, having a tested framework for student success courses could be a useful tool for current and future educators who focus on development and success.
