Resources for Faculty, Instructors, and Staff

Welcome, Starfish Faculty! Starfish is an academic early alert and communication software system. Course instructors can communicate with students about their progress by sending notifications called: Flags, Kudos, Referrals . The earlier an alert is raised, the better chance we have of identifying and addressing potential barriers with an appropriate intervention. Students are also very responsive to kudos that let them know their efforts are recognized and appreciated.

Starfish can help you by:
  • Providing an avenue for you to communicate with students and give feedback about their academic progress
  • Helping you facilitate a timely connection to campus support professionals and services
  • Allowing you to access a variety of information about a student
