Thomas, Liz
Journal of Education Policy, v17 n4 p423-42 Jul-Aug 2002
Examines some of the issues surrounding student retention in higher education, based on case study of a modern university in England that has good performance indicators. Adopts and explores the term "institutional habitus," and attempts to provide a conceptual and empirical understanding of the ways in which the values and practices of a higher education institution affect student retention.
