Description Speaker(s)
Student attrition is a complex process that cannot be explained simply by students’ lack of academic preparedness. Unearthing the roots of student attrition represents the critical first step in the process of building a well-designed, systemic retention plan. Once the core causes of attrition have been examined, institutions can turn to specific practices relating to each root cause of student attrition, which can then provide the components of a comprehensive and coordinated retention program.

This webinar will examine the multiplicity of factors that work singularly and collectively to trigger student withdrawal. Participants will leave with an understanding of the underlying root causes of student attrition and related remedies for uprooting these causes.
  • Gain insight into the core causes of student attrition
  • Understand how factors contributing to student attrition operate not in isolation, but in combination
  • Appreciate how redressing student attrition requires addressing the student as a “whole person”
  • Develop a systematic approach for identifying and intercepting the underlying sources of attrition on campus
  • Obtain a “big picture” view of the most powerful principles of student success
  • Appreciate the importance of taking an integrated and systemic approach to increasing student success
  • Acquire a common language for conceptualizing student learning and persistence that can be used to improve communication across different departments/divisions to create a unified “culture of success” on campus
  • Identify components of a systematic and sequential plan for promoting student persistence, from matriculation to graduation
