What is a Gate Review?

Gate Reviews are special meetings where faculty, staff, and stakeholders may go to give input on projects being completed by Six Sigma teams. Everyone is invited to attend following supervisor approval. Feedback and opinions of all employees are valued.

What will be discussed?

Under the current system, ICC does not have a college wide Academic Warning* process.  Students placed on Academic Warning may now be contacted in a variety of ways that may vary by department, program, or ICC employee.

The team has evaluated the Academic Warning process and will share improvements made to correspondence sent to students informing them of their placement on Academic Warning, additional academic reasons to further support the needs of students, and the new timeline implemented for placing students on Academic Warning. While ICC does not have a comprehensive Academic Warning* process yet, students placed on Academic Warning are initially contacted by the Vice President of Student Services.

*What is Academic Warning?

Academic Warning and attendance reporting are documented and reported in the AWARe environment of eServices (People Soft).  Never- Attended, Non-Attenders and Academic Warning are all documented within the AWARe environment of eServices.  The AWARE environment is available in the beginning of the course and will be updated as students are enrolled in and withdrawn from courses.

Placing a student on Academic Warning should occur only after direct faculty intervention has not corrected the issue.  Academic Warning may include reasons such as lack of basic skills, lack of academic progress and/or poor class attendance.  Once a student is reported on Academic Warning, a letter signed by the Vice President of Student Services is mailed to the student’s home with the class and reason for the warning along with a list of student support resources. If the academic warning is resolved, the faculty should return to AWARE to remove the warning.
