Abstract

Demographic shifts and a strong economy, not matched with increasing public investment in state higher education allocations, have colleges around the country struggling for enrollment growth and institutional vitality. At the same time, student needs are more diverse, course catalogues are more complex, and the costs of veering off the credential path are at an all-time high. In response, forward-thinking colleges have begun approaching student success and retention not just as moral/mission imperatives but also as a necessary measure for preserving and growing tuition revenue. Research tells us that investing in student success is an effective strategy for enrollment management, retention, and ultimately the bottom line. How has this shift influenced the mindset, strategy, and investments made by higher education leaders? What are the roles of faculty and the classroom in these efforts? This session will provide a broad overview of trends in student success and illustrate which investments in retention have provided wins for savvy institutions.
