Early alert/early support
programs have become best practice at many colleges and universities in Canada
and the US. Other Canadian Institutions that use an early alert/support program
include UBC, Ryerson University, Mount Royal University, the University of
Calgary, and many more.
The development of an early
support system is a priority that was included in CNC’s Institutional Health
& Wellness Strategy. CNC’s Early Alert & Thrive program is a custom system
developed by CNC Student Services, an “Early Support Committee”, and an “Early
Alert Committee” comprised of staff, faculty, and educational administrators to
fit the CNC context.
