Charge

The Retention Council's primary goal is to identify key factors that affect student success and retention within the university community and recommend interventions that address these factors.

The Retention Council, chaired by the University Retention Coordinator, is charged with the following responsibilities:

  • To track student enrollment, retention, and graduation and communicate this progress with the campus community on a regular basis;
  • To use assessment to identify proven best practices in the university community that are effective in ensuring student success and therefore retention;
  • To use assessment to identify potential barriers that impede student success and recommend effective, proactive interventions that address these barriers;
  • To communicate that student success and retention is the responsibility of every member of the campus community and recommend strategies for creating a teaching and learning community for fostering practices that promote successful learning and retention.
