Although get admission to to higher education is virtually universally to be had, college student retention stills remains a vexing and puzzling problem for educators and legislators.
In College Student Retention: Formula for Student Success, second edition, Alan Seidman deals with this problematic issue by examining a lot of areas vital to the retention of students, including the history, the theories and concepts, models, and a standardized definition of the term. Seidman and his contributors also lay out the financial implications and trends of retention in one among their up to date chapters. Completely new to this edition are three chapters that examine a couple of latest issues: the current theories of retention, retention of online students, and retention in community colleges. Tying all of these components together, Seidman then presents his formula and highly successful model for student success that colleges can put into effect to effect change in retaining students and helping them to finish their academic and personal goals.
