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 fully support our students in academic, advising, and general concerns.

In Starfish you can:

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