Let's Increase Student Retention Together
Research shows it’s more effective to retain current students
than to recruit prospective students
The past several years have seen a concerted effort to increase the number of first-generation, low-income and marginalized students in institutes of higher education. Some studies show that 36 percent of college freshmen are first-generation students.
Amelia Leighton Gamel knows first-generation students and how to retain them. Her latest data shows that she retains 90% of her college students, and her workshops offer an equitable approach that gives students what they need to be successful.
