The Texas A&M University Student Success Initiative (SSI) was initially launched by the Provost in 2018, and has continued to develop and evolve to support student outcomes across the institution. Galveston Campus has enthusiastically embraced the SSI mandate and proactively worked to create a "culture of success" where every student is able to get the support they need. 

The SSI specifically aims to impact four metrics across the University:

  • Increase first year retention
  • Increase four year graduation rates
  • Increase six year graduation rates
  • Decrease achievement disparities whether ethnic, first-gen college student status, gender, or socioeconomic

A central component of the Student Success Initiative is implementation of a first year experience program. This program, Hullabaloo U, aims to provide all first year students the foundational skills needed to succeed. This is achieved through placement of each student in a Hullabaloo U course that aligns to five standard learning outcomes:

  • Community formation and sense of belonging
  • Increased awareness of campus resources
  • Development of skills to achieve personal and academic goals
  • Equipped to contribute to a diverse and inclusive environment
  • Build major commitment & define marketable skills
