Rethinking College Student Retention

Drawing on studies funded by the Lumina Foundation, the nation’s largest private foundation focused solely on increasing Americans’ success in higher education, the authors revise current theories of college student departure, including Tinto’s, making the vital distinction between residential and commuter colleges and universities, and thereby making an allowance for the role of the external environment and the characteristics of social communities in student departure and retention.

First-year college student retention and degree completion is a multi-layered, multi-dimensional problem, and the book’s recommendations for state- and institutional-level policy and practice will assist policy-makers and planners at all levels in addition to somebody serious about institutional retention rates—and helping students reach their maximum potential for success—have in mind the complexities of the problem and develop policies and initiatives to increase student persistence.
