Alfred, Richard L., Ed.
Four main objectives of the conference reported in these proceedings were: (1) to provide a basic orientation for two-year college faculty and administrative personnel as to what student attrition is and the types of impact that it has upon the institutional setting; (2) to interpret the vocabulary pertinent to student attrition, identifying new terms as well as those terms which are traditional but appear under a new title; (3) to examine the impact of student attrition upon various organizational components of the community-junior college; and (4) to realistically appraise the current status of student attrition in the community-junior college, and to develop an operational model for application of institutional techniques to the problem of attrition. The following papers are provided: I. Introduction to the Phenomenon of Student Attrition in the Community-Junior College, by Richard L. Alfred; II. Student Attrition: The Institutional Climate, by Alice J. Thurston; III. Student Attrition: A Methodological Perspective, by Richard L. Alfred; IV.
