Embedded Learning Fellow Program
This program focuses on engagement of Learning Fellows to provide more individualized attention and assistance during class activities and/or to motivate students’ participation and engagement in the curriculum outside the classroom setting. Learning fellows can apply to both online and in-person modalities. The role of the learning fellow is NOT to provide technical support for delivery of content. The fellow may attend all, or only certain class meeting days each week.
Depending on the faculty goals, the Embedded Learning Fellow may serve as:
a peer tutor, providing support to students as they work with the class content and texts;
a mentor, helping students foster connections with resources and support services;
a model student, demonstrating effective student behaviors and successful academic habits
The Embedded Learning Fellow may engage in the following types of activities:
Facilitating small group exercises or discussions
Offering the perspective of an experienced student in class discussions
Working with individual students who require additional support during class activities
Assisting students to learn how to effectively utilize software, tools, etc.
Guiding students, providing feedback and answering questions during in-class, hands-on practice
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to set up an appointment to discuss the program in more detail.

Student of Concern Form: This form is to be utilized by students, faculty and staff, to inform university officials of your concerns regarding a student.
Drew University is committed to increasing student retention, persistence, and success. One of the many ways the University can do this is by using the early alert system, Beacon. This module is designed to quickly identify students who present with academic behaviors that indicate a risk for academic difficulty or failure and connect them with campus resources.
Faculty often have the most daily contact with students. Beacon provides a platform for faculty to communicate concerns regarding a student’s academic behaviors. Beacon allows individuals in a student’s Success Network to access this valuable information and affords them the ability to identify trends and intervene. The Success Network is made up of University stakeholders who frequently interact with a student. Depending upon the student’s major and involvement on campus, these individuals include academic advisors, professional staff advisers, athletic advisors, and academic support staff in the Center for Academic Excellence. Other stakeholders who have access to Beacon include the Directors of Accessibility Resources, Counseling and Psychological Services, and Residence Life.
For help accessing Beacon and for data questions, please email email@example.com
