Abstract:

In this paper, we offer a typology of retention efforts to date that have been informed by a variety of presumed causes of attrition. We examine factors that promote student retention and success as a way of thinking about innovative and effective programs. We describe and report on the evaluation of one such program--student-faculty research partnerships--that bridges the academic and student services domains while at the same time being responsive to the institutional context.
