Join us for a webinar from  Innovative Educators on "Persistence vs Retention: Legislation and The Changing Paradigm of Student Success."

Interpreters will be provided

Overview of Webinar:
Improving the retention and success rates of undergraduate students continues to be a major topic of discussion for higher education administrators and other stakeholders. Retention refers to an institution's ability to retain students from one performance period to the next. Persistence is the student's ability to continue enrollment from one term to subsequent terms. While postsecondary institutions have emphasized retention, the push for greater accountability by tying student completion outcomes to eligibility for federal student aid programs (Partnerships for Affordability and Student Success Act, S. 1874), requires postsecondary institutions to focus on strategies to increase student persistence to degree completion.

This interactive webinar will discuss the higher prioritization of persistence as a driver of student success to bolster retention. Participants will learn the importance of shifting priorities from a retention-based approach to a persistence-driven student success model.

Objectives:
Participants will:

  • Examine the impact of proposed legislative changes on how student success is measured
  • Explore student perspectives on the correlation between persistence, retention, graduation, and ultimately, successful student outcomes
  • Infuse persistence into student success programming as part of the strategic plan

Review cost-benefit analysis (return on investment or ROI) for persistence

Who should attend?

  • 2-year institutions & 4-year institutions
  • Academic Affairs/Instruction
  • Student Services/Affairs
  • Faculty (full and part-time)
  • Retention Specialist
