Project Coordinator Rosalind Ong De Treviño and Communications Specialist Nicole Duff from the Office of Information Technology (OIT), Customer Relations and Communications (CRC) team, wrote a blog post titled "Managing Change in Higher Ed Student Success Initiatives" that was published by the EDUCAUSEreview Transforming Higher Ed column.

The article focused on the Kotter Change Management training that was held at UTSA in March in support of the launch of Education Advisory Board Student Success Collaborative (EAB / SSC). Representatives from Achieving the Dream facilitated discussions to explore what is needed to ensure project success for UTSA.

UTSA is a recipient of the Integrated Planning and Advising for Student Success (iPASS) grant. Twenty four institutions from across the nation were selected to be a part of this project, funded in part by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.

"iPASS includes tech-enabled advising, counseling, progress tracking, and academic early alerts (Educause.edu)" focusing on improving three student facing function (education planning, counseling and coaching, and targeting risk and intervention) by improving on current technology and services. OIT partners with Institutional Research to support the efforts of the Provost Office and Academic Advising toward student success.
