Watching The Bouncing Ball: The Persistence and Graduation Rate of Students of Color at a Predominately White Institution

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The persistence and graduation rate of students of color is a concern of most institutions of higher learning. This presentation will focus on how offices tasked with increasing the persistence and retention rates can achieve success. The program will begin by discussing the pros and cons to repositioning and repurposing a traditional Minority Student Services office from a student services division, focusing on cultural programs, into an enrollment management division with a focus on academic and social success. We will discussing the MSS office from a programmatic standpoint; how we built and aligned our services with current retention literature that speaks to addressing students from an individual, intentional, and intrusive perspective. Lastly, we will examine an academic year’s worth of data that will serve to validate the strength of the strategies that are currently in use. We are currently seven percent ahead of last year at this time in terms of students of color who are on academic probation.
