A cross-functional, university wide team is helping to implement projects and plans to increase first year student success. Areas of focus include: student learning communities, addressing student basic needs, professional development, early alert and interventions, and advising.

RFY is a national project coordinated by AASCU (American Association of Sate Colleges and Universities). HSU is one of 44 institutions selested to join the RFY effort. Last Fall, HSU participated in a competitive process that was open to all of the 500+ AASCU member institutions - we were selected because of the numerous high-impact first year activities that we already have in place.
