ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene University
This study examined the relationship between mentoring, the mitigation of non-cognitive risk factors, and first-time, full-time college students' first-to-second semester rates at a medium-sized, public, higher education institution in the southeast. An enrollment management professional, the researcher facilitated and implemented this action research dissertation project. The studied institution agreed to allow this research to be conducted on students entering their freshman year during the Fall 2009 semester. The results indicated that mentoring encourages the retention of some students who are determined to have a specific level of non-cognitive risk at the time of enrollment.
