The relationship between an institution and its students is changing. Where students were once expected to be the drivers of their own success, many learners today consider their school to be the primary contributor to their ability to persist in their educations. Similarly, institutions now see themselves playing a key role in empowering student achievement. Schools are actively offering a wide breadth of experiences—academic, social, athletic, and more—to encourage students to persist and are striving to find new ways to help students overcome the challenges that might otherwise impede their educational journey.
Yet studies show that 1/3 of students do not complete their degree and 2/3 of those non-completing students drop out within their first year. Fortunately, you can combat these trends, better support your students, and build institutional efficiencies that will drive success.
