Student success research in higher education has provided an immense understanding of those factors that explain why students decide to leave, and to some extent, why students persist on to graduation. However, few studies have leveraged student success research to identify an inventory of needs that should be met in order for students to succeed in college. This paper leverages a collection of influential student success theoretical perspectives to develop a needs analysis framework to elicit and identify engineering student success needs. The framework provides a structured participatory method to translate vague student needs into actionable statements that holistically capture the needs of engineering students. The results of a pilot study are presented to demonstrate the applicability of this framework.
