Every Advantage for a Successful Education

Every Advantage for a Successful Education (EASE) is Columbia's user-friendly, always available, proactive system for notifying student resources when a student is exhibiting social, personal and/or academic problems. The system links a network of student support offices across campus: Counseling Services, MulticulturalAffairs, Student Health and Support, College Advising Center, Residence Life, The Learning Studio, and Student Financial Services. When follow-up is the right course of action, the EASE coordinator will notify the appropriate student resource to reach out and offer students individualized, timely, and caring assistance to help them persist and be successful in their studies.

EASE is a way to provide students facing difficulties with the opportunity to receive assistance before they are at risk of dropping out or falling out of academic compliance. The system also aims to aid faculty with classroom concerns allowing them to focus on teaching. EASE will additionally assist the College by helping to identify the need for additional or different resources in the service of student success.

All faculty members have access to send EASE notifications.  If a staff member would like access, they simply need to contact Amanda Johnson.
