Student Outreach Network Team (SON Team)
The Student Outreach Network (SON) was officially implemented in early February 2007 and is chaired by Beth Gerl, the Vice President and Dean of Student Affairs. Each week the SON group gathers to share and discuss students who are demonstrating various signs of “at-risk” behavior. As each student is discussed, members of the group provide up-to-date knowledge which includes, but not limited to, academic performance, out-of-classroom involvement, disciplinary issues, and information gathered from faculty, coaches, family and friends. With key “players” at the table, discussion ensues to develop an appropriate plan of action. From week to week, staff and faculty members are involved in this plan of action through direct and indirect intervention of each student.
