We're All in This Together: How One University Drew on Collective Impact Principles to Advance Student Success in Higher Education
Jones, Bruce; Croft, Maureen; Longacre, Teri
Metropolitan Universities, v28 n4 p53-64 Nov 2017
Student attrition rates in higher education are an ongoing concern in the U.S, and are costly to students themselves, colleges and universities, and the economy in terms of dollars and human potential. Thus, the need to identify solutions to student attrition is pressing for both students who are enrolled in institutions of higher education today, and for multiple generations of students yet to enroll. This article discusses collective impact as a model of intervention at an urban university and the quest to promote institutional efficacy around student retention and graduation strategies in partnership with internal (on-campus) and external (off-campus) constituents.
