ABOUT THE CSU SAN MARCOS COUGAR CARE NETWORK: This presentation will provide a behind the scenes look at the California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) Cougar Care Network, which is an early support initiative to improve student success, retention, and persistence. By leveraging technology to collect early alert referrals from campus community members and route them to appropriate support personnel for targeted follow up, the Cougar Care Network serves as a “safety net” to assist students who may be experiencing challenges inside or outside the classroom.
