A Student-Centered Individual-Level University Retention Program Where Attrition Is Low.
Sieveking, Nicholas; Perfetto, Greg
Journal of College Student Retention, v2 n4 p341-53 2000-2001
Describes a systematic, student-centered retention program developed under the auspices of a university psychological and counseling center; through self-identification and follow-up, individuals are assisted with complex issues that commonly lead to withdrawal. Suggests that a useful alternative to retention is promoting reasons for students to stay rather than attempting to predict and resolve the multiple reasons for leaving. (EV)
