Preventing College Dropouts: A Review.
This issue of CURRENTS reviews some of the general findings on the dropout, and outlines approaches that have proven effective at various types of institutions in reducing dropout rates. Most of the programs examined here are aimed at early identification of the potential dropout and prevention of his withdrawal through the provision of special services. Other programs deal with "last ditch" measures by the university to keep the student in school and with efforts to retrieve the student once he has dropped out. (Author)
