Less Talk, More Action: Real Retention Really Working
11:30 - 12:15
In this joint presentation between Concordia University, Ryerson University and CRi Inc., we will explore the process of getting a functioning and effective retention system in place. This will include a look at how the institutions identify students at risk and the methods they use to reach out to them. We'll share insights into how these processes got started, what went right, what went wrong, and lessons we learned along the way. We'll also discuss how to get entering students to take part and what we found to be the most effective messaging and methods of reaching out to students. And finally, we'll provide examples of what the students themselves say about the interventions they received.Join us for this opportunity to learn from our successes and mistakes and you'll be rewarded with ideas and processes you can implement on your own campus.
