Developing a Sustainable Retention and Student Success Program
STUDENT RETENTION AND SUCCESS PROGRAMS REQUIRE A TEAM EFFORT
Your students have selected your institution for various reasonsóacademic reputation, location, affordability.
They choose to stay at your institution for reasons that are less varied. They want to feel successful, reach their goals, and stay within a budget.
Everyone plays a role.
You might be in charge of leading your institutionís retention program, but you shouldnít be alone.
Retaining students is so important to your institutionís success that everyone should be responsible for student success: college administrators, financial aid counselors, admissions directors, recruitment counselors, marketing directors, student services directors, technology department representatives, and faculty members.
Shifting an institutionís culture away from rigid job responsibilities to a more collaborative model can be a tough sell. It doesnít happen overnight, but it is achievable and crucial to your institutionís success.
The 43-page white paper, Developing a Sustainable Retention and Student Success Program, outlines how to assemble a campus-wide team to focus on student retention, and also provides readers with checklists and questionnaires to evaluate progress and fill in gaps.
Developing a Sustainable Retention and Student Success Program will help you identify who needs to be involved in your programís efforts, design a program that includes the essential elements for success, look at the right data, make informed decisions, and provide guidance to faculty members in their retention efforts.

- The 16 pitfalls of a retention and student success program
- The 25 reports every recruitment administrator needs
- The 25 questions that a retention and student success committee should ask about its institution
