Student retention, defined as first-time, full-time college students returning to the institution for their second year, is associated with greater student persistence and graduation rates. Nationwide, nearly one-third of first-year freshman do not return for their sophomore year. (NCES 2019) There are many factors associated with retention. Some are fixed, such as socioeconomic or first-generation status, whereas others are influenced by student perceptions of the school they are attending. Join us on Wednesday, September 13th, to hear a panel discussion on how institutions can intervene to better manage student retention on your campus.
