Student Success. March 2006
Online Submission
"Student Success" is EPI's occasional e-magazine dedicated to the discussion of retaining students in higher education. Over the course of the next issues of "Student Success," the Educational Policy Institute (EPI) will explore three questions about retention on our college campuses. Part I will look at the barriers to student retention, both from the extant literature, but also from interviews and surveys EPI has conducted through workshops around the US and Canada. Part II will focus on programs and strategies that appear to either help OR hinder student retention on campus. Ultimately, we all want answers. This discussion will provide some core issues for understanding what matters. Finally, Part III will discuss the inherent difficulties in getting buy-in on our campuses--all campuses--from faculty, staff, administration, and yes, students. In this issue: (1) Feature: Part I. Barriers to Student Retention and Success on College Campuses (Watson Scott Swail); (2) Interview: Patrick Terenzini, Penn State University; (3) The Review: "Student Success in College," by George D. Kuh, Jillian Kinzie, John H. Schuh, Elizabeth J Whitt, and Associates; (4) Best Practice: Indiana Bloomington University; and (5) Case Study: Retaining Students in Court Reporting School.
