Student success initiatives are often widespread, and they impact multiple areas of a single institution. However, campus administrators often don’t have enough program information to strategically allocate resources to the initiatives that create the most impact. This can lead to wasted resources and misaligned attention on programs that do not contribute to student success.
Join us for an online training session that will help you understand how your retention team is measuring the success of the retention programs you have in place. You will leave with a worksheet that organizes the institutional programs, goals, and students related to these initiatives.
Who Should Attend
This online training is right for you if you are tasked with measuring and assessing the effectiveness of your retention strategy and want to begin understanding the depth of efforts on your campus. Professionals from four-year and two-year institutions alike will benefit from this webcast and may include:
- Enrollment managers
- Institutional researchers
- Student and academic affairs leaders
- Assessment coordinators
As part of this webcast, we will give you a worksheet to better organize your student success initiatives. This worksheet will categorize your various programs, programmatic goals, and related student populations.
After participating in this online training, you will be able to conduct a program audit for your retention initiatives.
