Examining Factors Influencing Attrition at a Small, Private, Selective Liberal Arts College
Gansemer-Topf, Ann M.; Zhang, Yi; Beatty, Cameron C.; Paja, Scott
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v51 n3 p270-285 2014
Despite a diverse body of literature on college student retention, studies focusing on small, private, selective liberal arts colleges are limited. This study utilized a mixed methodology beginning with logistic regression analyses and followed with a qualitative inquiry that included interviews with students who had not persisted. While variables impacting persistence at selective institutions may differ from other types of institutions, the role of student affairs in student success remains critical.
