Every year, we conduct program evaluation research on FIT: Action to get a sense of whether it ‘works.’ The consensus? It does. Our research consistently shows that:

  1. Academically at-risk students who participate in FIT: Action are significantly more likely to move from Academic Warning to Good Standing than those who do not participate
  2. Students who participate in FIT: Action see significant improvements in mental health (which is not the case for comparison groups of students who do not participate), with those who enter FIT: Action with “impaired” mental health moving to within the “average” range

We are here to help students during the often stressful transitions and adjustments involved in being a university student. We work with students to help identify strategies to help in areas such as:

  • Stress management and coping
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Emotional regulation, including depression and anxiety
  • Time management and procrastination
  • Learning strategies
  • Goal setting
  • Self-motivation
  • Life balance
  • Knowledge of Carleton’s academic audit system
  • Vocational and educational planning
