Johnson, Judith L.
Journal of College Student Retention, v2 n3 p219-38 2000-2001
Describes the evaluation of four different retention programs implemented at the University of Southern Maine. Data from student surveys, student test scores and grades, and program cost figures indicated that the two learning community programs were more effective than the non-learning community programs. Investment in learning communities made the difference in terms of successful completion of college. (SM)
