The Panther Success Initiative (PSI) is designed to assist and develop students in their transition to Eastern Illinois University (EIU) through graduation. The goal of PSI is to assist each student in reaching their full potential, regardless of where they are at in their college career, while also promoting their academic and personal development.
PSI is reached through Housing Staff, including Resident Assistants (RA); Senior Staff Assistants (SSA); Associate Resident Directors (ARD), and Complex Directors (CD), building intentional relationships with each of their residents, along with staying focused on the UHDS values at EIU. Individual conversations between each student and RA are conducted at least monthly to assist the student in developing academically and personally. Through these conversations, the RA, along with their professional staff member develop the best avenues to assist each student in reaching his/her/their goals (i.e. programs, bulletin boards, conversations, etc.).
