Student success and retention have become common buzzwords in higher education over the last decade. With an increased pressure to increase retention rates and demonstrate student success, institutions are deliberately including these areas in their formal strategic planning initiatives. Given the complexity of retention issues, many institutions are electing to create a strategic plan focused solely on retention in addition to their campus-wide strategic planning efforts.
Designing a strategic retention plan is a worthwhile endeavor, but it is not without its challenges, and it can be overwhelming to know where to start. In our latest eBook for the Foundations of Retention series, we’ve outlined a 7-step process for crafting a strategic retention plan for your institution.
Each of the steps outlined in the eBook will provide you with clear direction, best practices, and considerations to ensure your process is well-designed, and most importantly, the end result has a lasting impact on student success and retention at your institution.
