Reframing Retention Strategy for Institutional Improvement
Take an in-depth look at the difficulty in gaining traction atthe institutional level in improving student retention and degreecompletion rates—especially at larger four year institutionswhere size, complexity, and multiplicity of structures andprocesses present particular challenges.
This volume offers a way for institutional leaders to betterfocus their time, energy, and resources in their retention effortby framing the way they think about it using the 4 Ps of retentionstrategy: profile, progress, process, and promise. This simpleframework challenges long-standing, traditional assumptions aboutstudent retention that can distract and dilute institutionalefforts, and helps keep those efforts sharply and singularlyfocused on improving retention and degree completion outcomes.
This is the 161st volume of this Jossey-Bass series. Addressedto higher education decision makers on all kinds of campuses,New Directions for Higher Education provides timelyinformation and authoritative advice about major issues andadministrative problems confronting every institution.
