  • COVID-19 Update: Remote Operations in Effect


    Until further notice, CSU Pueblo is serving our students and the public in a remote model.

Starfish for Faculty

Do you Starfish?

Support your students through surveys and direct communication. Students may engage in their course material at times outside of class and require assistance. Systematic, ongoing interaction with students through Starfish will help address questions and concerns that arise at any time, as well as recognizing and encouraging successful learning strategies. Communication shared between campus offices allows coordinated and informed efforts to support our students in academic, advising, and general concerns.

In Starfish you can:

  • Respond to scheduled surveys (No Show or Performance)
  • Track student attendance
  • Raise alerts manually
    • Kudos to students doing well
    • Flag student concerns for follow up
    • Refer students to services
  • Respond to student requests
  • Close alerts after student action with notes
  • Make advising notes
  • Post office hours and Schedule student appointments
  • Contact advisees or majors
  • Communicate with advisors and support staff
