CU Succeed

Powered by Starfish

CU Succeed is an intervention and tracking system that uses a holistic approach to student success. CU Succeed enables faculty to provide academic and non-academic alerts, as well as commend students for their accomplishments. Alerts raised through CU Succeed are automatically shared with the student support personnel best positioned to intervene.

CU Succeed Progress Surveys enable faculty to raise flags (concerns) and kudos (achievements) on students during critical points during the semester. 


How do I access CU Succeed?

Anyone can access CU Succeed through Blackboard. The CU Succeed link is accessible on the Blackboard Institution Page. 

What is a student’s Success Network?

The Success Network is a quick way to identify all members of the Campbell University community that participate in each unique student’s academic success. Individuals who have a current relationship with the student during a semester are listed in the success network (e.g. instructor, academic advisor, librarian, administrator). The Success Network may change each semester based on the student’s academic program and course enrollment.

Who has permission to view flags raised in CU Succeed?

Privacy is important to us. Therefore, only the student, the flag raiser, and members of the student’s success network that have been granted viewing permissions are able to view flags raised on a student. Note, CU Succeed is protected under the Family Educational Rights and Protection Act (FERPA).

When are CU Succeed Progress Surveys completed?

CU Succeed Progress Surveys are deployed at two key points during each semester: two weeks after the start of the semester (preceding the course drop deadline) and at the midterm (preceding the withdrawal deadline).

How can faculty access CU Succeed Progress Surveys?

Faculty will receive an email announcement each time a new survey is deployed. The email will include a direct link for faculty to access active progress surveys in CU Succeed.

What happens when faculty raise a flag (concern) or kudo (recognition) for a student?

When a flag or kudo is raised, an email notification is sent to the student and copied to their advisor/student success coordinator detailing the concern or recognition. Student success coordinators intervene to support the student in appropriately addressing concerns based on the information submitted by faculty.

Are CU Succeed Progress Surveys the only way I can address student concerns?

No. We encourage you to communicate directly with students about your concerns. However, if you do not feel comfortable speaking with the student about your concerns or have already done so and do not see any improvement you can raise manual flags in CU Succeed. You can raise manual flags by selecting the “Students” page in CU Succeed. The “Students” page will provide you with a list of all of students with whom you have connection. You can filter this list by course section. If you would like assistance raising flags or kudos please see the below resource or contact
