Retention data is important for decision-making and planning and therefore this seminar should be experienced by faculty, senior-level administrators, admissions personnel and external funding agencies. The reason retention is so highly valued is because it is considered one of the core indicators of institutional effectiveness. All institutions should be studying and monitoring their retention patterns, and they must often consider the impact of their institutionís mission on retention. The dilemma of working with at-risk populations is an important consideration when dealing with this vexing issue. Can an institution be both accessible and maintain reasonably effective retention and graduation rates?
This seminar will cover several factors related to retention including special populations, early indicators of student success and the growing gender performance gap. More detailed retention rate problems include student SAT scores, graduating high school and students from low income.
