The Partnership for Academic Recovery (PAR) encourages student success by providing additional personal attention for Dixie State University (DSU) students on academic warning, probation or suspension. Through one-on-one meetings with peer mentors, students have the opportunity to explore areas that are impeding their academic success and work collaboratively with their advisor to establish a recovery plan. Located in the academic advisement center, peer mentors work closely with the academic intervention advisor to work towards improving their academic standing and progress towards graduation. Peer Mentors use the results of the ACT generated Engage Survey to highlight each individual student’s strengths and weaknesses and transfer that information into goal setting sessions and follow-up appointments.
