Bears MATR will assist students in the following ways:

  • Work on an individual basis with students who may be having a difficult time
    navigating through UNC.
  • Work with students at the pre-withdrawal and withdrawal stage, with the principal
    goal of utilizing referral tools and intervention strategies in order to retain
    students.
  • Gather data from students via exit interviews/one-to-one meetings in order to
    inform UNC of reasons for withdrawal or desire to withdrawal. 
  • Develop a timetable for re-entry if student decides to withdraw.
  • Mentor students, and work on and coordinate various retention/success opportunities with the following students: Denver Scholarship Foundation students, unaccompanied youth, East African students, walk-ins (those requesting appointment with Enrollment Management and Student Access) and walk-ups (those that request withdrawal from the Office of the Registrar).
  • African students, walk-ins (those requesting appointment with EMSA) and walk-ups (those that request withdrawal from the Office of the Registrar).
