Targeted Strategies to Engage & Empower Students Through Graduation
“Administrators anticipate that students grappling with the financial and psychological impacts of the virus could choose to stay closer to home, go to less expensive schools, take a year off or not go to college at all. A higher education trade group has predicted a 15 percent drop in enrollment nationwide, amounting to a $23 billion revenue loss.”
The New York Times, 4/15/20
Students bring their struggles with them to your campus — from budget constraints to mental health concerns and more — and these daily life challenges can adversely affect their ability to pursue higher education through graduation.
Taking proactive steps to address student struggles before they transfer or drop out will give them a better chance at achieving their educational goals — and minimize the negative effect a low retention rate can have on your institution's bottom line.
Plus, a high retention rate signals to prospective students that the living and learning environment at your institution will be conducive to their success and satisfaction.
