Publisher's Book Description: What really works in student retention?
Increasing Persistence offers a compendium on college student persistence that bridges the gaps between theory, research, and successful practice. Anchored by ACT, Inc.’s 2010 What Works in Student Retention survey of 1,100 colleges and universities, which provides insights on the causes of attrition and identifies retention interventions most likely to enhance student persistence, the book provides decision-makers and practitioners with evidence-based interventions and best practices for improving student success in college.
