Professor Adam Wagler was recently invited to serve as a student success fellow for the office of the Executive Vice Chancellor (EVC) fellows program. Wagler is one of 12 who were chosen as fellows.

The new program is aimed at advancing student success by teaching fellows about current and future student success initiatives, both on campus and nationally.

Fellows will focus on discussing literature and research related to student success and data definitions and tools for identifying and analyzing student success trends. Fellows will take part in regular meetings with directors of academic engagement programs and learn more about the current student success initiatives taking place on campus.

“The fellows program will provide a space to look at ways the University can support student success,” Wagler said. “There are students from various backgrounds at UNL, so exploring ways they get the most out of their education will be exciting. I hope my background with digital and interactive media as well as instructional technology will contribute to the mission when the team digs into research, data and analytics and strategy development.”

Fellows will also have the option to develop their own project based on improving student success at Nebraska.

The EVC Faculty Fellows program is for the 2018-19 academic year. Fellows programs are designed to help faculty gain a better understanding of leadership and university administration while strengthening expertise on leading change in specific areas.
