Learning, Teaching and Student Services (LTSS)

Student Success

The University conceptualizes student success in a holistic manner, rather than narrowly defining this as purely academic success like retention rates, or time to completion for qualifications (although it recognizes these as important). The University thus seeks to contribute to the success of its students by improving the quality of support services it offers the students, enhancing the student community and environment to meet health, safety and community concerns, and offering a better experience to students, one that respects and promotes the Pacific consciousness and cohesiveness.

To enhance student success, we are looking to:

  • improve the equity of student services; create a student community with high levels of awareness of health and safety issues and respect for others;
  • improve attendance, retention, pass and completion rates;
  • promote Pacific consciousness and cohesiveness;
  • and substantially increase student accommodation on the large campuses.
