For Faculty/Instructors

Academic Achievement Program


The Academic Achievement Program aims to provide instructional teams with guidelines and resources for supporting undergraduate engineering student success. To achieve this, we recommend:

1.      Early detection of students needing academic intervention within a course

2.      Early communication with students about their academic performance

3.      Referral of students to additional resources to support their well-being and academic success

AAP Orientations are held during Week 1 of every quarter. To get involved, email

Academic Achievement Program Handbook [LINK TO DOC]

The AAP Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of the goals and activities of the program. It includes guidelines and resources to help you complete the Early Academic Intervention Planning Checklist as well as dozens of resources for your undergraduate students. Review the resources to get familiar with the resources so that you can refer students to them. Additionally, it outlines several teaching resources for Faculty and Graduate Students available through the Teaching + Learning Commons.


Early Academic Intervention Planning Checklist [LINK TO DOC]

The Planning Checklist asks you to detail your course’s plans for supporting students at the start of each quarter, including identifying and communicating with students about their academic performance. This plan would then be implemented in the course.
