The SST formed in 2006 to bring attention and action to issues that influence undergraduate student success. It’s one of several initiatives inspired by The Iowa Promise strategic plan, which foregrounds undergraduate education and enrichment.

During 2006-2007, SST members reviewed admission and retention data, institutional factors that influence student success, and surveys of student experiences and outcomes. This research informed an action plan for 2007-2009.

Today, projects that originated with SST are becoming part of the campus culture. The IOWA Challenge summarizes UI expectations and values—a mission statement for students, and fall Convocation marks the start of the academic year with new traditions.
