Student retention and completion is a priority for all institutions. Not only is it our mission, but failing to keep students enrolled through degree completion is expensive and affects key metrics that are often tied to prestige and budgets. Studies show that student retention problems are often related to student finances. In this session, learn how Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, Michigan State University, and Arizona State University are addressing retention concerns. Participants will learn about unique partnerships, programs, and initiatives (such as completion grants), as well as how to use data to formulate and execute programs that can be studied and potentially replicated.
