The CUNY EDGE Program provides an environment in which all students have access to the educational opportunities and support they need to achieve academic success, a sustainable career and a brighter future.
Starfish is an online platform that brings together students, faculty and advisers with a common goal of supporting student success. Starfish includes an early alert system where faculty can raise awareness about the challenges that students may be facing in their classes early enough in the semester. Academic Advisers and other student support staff can then plan strategic and personalized interventions to support students who may be experiencing a variety of challenges.
Students can login to Starfish to see who is a part of their success network—academic advisers and coaches, instructors, tutorial services, peer mentors, Athletics, student support services—and be able to book appointments online. Thanks to Starfish, key BCC staff responsible for supporting students will be able to manage their student caseload with greater efficiency and transparency.
