Welcome to our Student Success BLOG!! My name is Bari Marchfeld, and I am the Director of Student Success for Chartwells Higher Education. I'm pretty sure I have one of the most fun jobs on my team, since I get to work with our leadership teams, students and academic partners to ensure success for all... definitely a win-win-win!
Having a degree in education, and a past teaching fifth grade, I really enjoy taking my student engagement to the next level, which is helping them prepare for their future careers! I make sure my teams and I really understand what student need to stay on track to graduating on time, and how our organization can help them achieve their dreams while still in school through paid internships, and then after.
Throughout the school year, I spend majority of my time out in the field at our 280+ accounts, meeting with our interns, visiting classrooms and ensuring that the Student Success program is as consistent, relevant and easy for our managers to implement. My favorite part is definitely hanging with the interns, seeing them in action and learning about all of their ideas playing out successfully in our business.
I'm looking forward to sharing all of our stories on this blog so that you can get a true feeling of the Student Success community. You will also hear from our interns, our manager and interns who have graduated and our now our leaders. If you would like to talk to me about any questions or ideas, please reach out anytime: firstname.lastname@example.org
