Student retention, persistence, and progression are critical issues for our institutions, regardless of the institutional type, mission, or student demographics. This is especially true in the present economic and political climate. Reaching and graduating our undergraduate and graduate students, more than ever, contributes to the “bottom line” through revenue generation which, in turn, supports our campus activities and programs. So in addition to being responsible to our students and our constituencies for the academic, personal, and career success of our students, our institutions also are recognizing that reaching out to retain students can make the difference in their financial survival.
