The Student Success Centre welcomes you to the Early Support Toolkit!
Faculty members not only inspire and challenge students through their teaching, research, and course materials, but also play a key role in supporting their students’ academic success. Lakehead students have shared that they look to faculty for information around academic supports and services. Faculty want to help but have voiced the need for greater supports as they provide resources and referrals to students.
This toolkit was developed to support you in doing just that and builds on the great work already being done by instructors. You can learn more about some of the insights, research and best practices that underline this toolkit here.
