Tinto's Model and Successful College Transitions.
Tucker, John E.
Journal of College Student Retention, v1 n2 p163-75 1999
Compares the themes of academic and social integration in Tinto's model of college student attrition with the themes of "vision" and "sense of community" as described in a recent ethnographic study. It is argued that vision and sense of community are more useful theoretical considerations in helping address college student retention than is Tinto's model, which should be reconsidered. (MSE)
