A multisite case study of early alert implementation to adoption at the University of Missouri System
This multisite case study of academic early alert warning system implementation explored the relationship between leadership, users (faculty and staff), technology, and the organization when implementing a campus wide early alert program facilitated by new technology at a university system in the Midwest. Early alert technology allows faculty and staff to raise academic concerns and outreach to students during the semester. The findings suggested that technology, people, task and structure were core components impacting implementation and adoption of tools. The findings also suggested that clear expectations from leadership, alignment of tasks within job duties, clearly defined processes, resources to support training, and data outcomes are essential to early alert adoption.
