Provost’s Student Success Research/Practitioner Collaborative
In August 2019, Pitt established a research/practitioner advisory group to ensure that (1) our new student-success initiatives and programs are informed by the latest research and (2) Pitt researchers are aware of the University’s initiatives and programs and can study their effects. Creating a community in which our research is translated into practice—and our practices are studied and learned from—will lead to increases in our public profile, in research publications, and in grant funding.
- Serve as a sounding board where practitioners/administrators/instructors present ideas for new interventions/programs
- Develop best practices for research projects involving Pitt students
- Inform the design of research projects
- Catalyze research-practice partnerships between Pitt researchers and practitioners
