Campus Practices for Student Success: A Compendium of Model Programs.
American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
This volume contains descriptions of programs for student success and retention at 68 state colleges and universities in the United States. Each institution is a participant in the National Retention Project, a research-based project working within broader campus cultures that are committed to providing access and success to students traditionally underrepresented in American higher education. The one-to-two-page program descriptions are arranged alphabetically by the name of the college. The programs are characterized by strategies which facilitate student success, such as: a student-centered philosophy, early intervention, routine faculty and student assessment, intrusive advising, involvement of faculty as well as senior administrators, and required orientation for new and transfer students. The volume contains a list of the members of the Sallie Mae National Retention Advisory Panel, a list of conferences and participants, and an 88-item bibliography of resources on student retention in higher education.
