Titan Success Network

TSN logoThe Titan Success Network (TSN) is a campus-wide initiative designed to improve student success and retention at ϲʲͼ Mercy. TSN refers to two things:

  1. The interconnecting academic and support services on campus that work together for student success, including the TSN committee.
  2. The online platform, Beacon, that identifies at-risk students and allows instructors, academic advisors and other support personnel to coordinate communication and effective interventions for those students.

The guiding principle behind the Titan Success Network is expressed in the key element of our mission at ϲʲͼ Mercy, which is to integrate the intellectual, spiritual, ethical and social development of all of our students. Research on retention demonstrates that all students, and in particular at-risk students, benefit from comprehensive support that addresses the whole student, not merely academic planning.

The Titan Success Network embodies ϲʲͼ Mercy's commitment to provide excellent student-centered education by creating a network of faculty, staff, and administrators who can work together to support all aspects of our students’ development. As an early-warning system, TSN helps identify why a student may be at-risk for attrition and in what areas they need support (academic, financial, psycho-social, behavioral, etc.).

The Titan Success Network links students with the individualized resources they need, when they need them. The Network strives to connect students with departments and services, empowering them to succeed academically and socially at ϲʲͼ.
