Just how important is academics to retention?

As university administrators continue to focus on student success and retention, many have put an increased emphasis on student engagement initiatives and non-academic programs. However, when these same administrators put in place analytics solutions and early-alert programs, many are focused on academic data. With these potentially conflicting approaches, we search for more clarity - how important is academics to retention, and where should administrators focus to maximize student success?

Learning Objectives

  1. What types of retention initiatives have been the most successful?
  2. How well can a student's experience outside of the classroom by quantified?
  3. How can a university figure out what will be most effective for them?
