The Magic Number: Using Involvement Data to Uncover Key Indicators for Retention

Tuesday, May 5 @ 5:00 pm EST

Finding the Magic Number
About this webinar

We know that students' involvement on campus is linked to higher rates of persistence and retention, but how involved is too involved? If you could know that precise information for your student population, what types of interventions would you design? How would your work change? In this presentation, we'll discuss how Valdosta State University used their student involvement data to identify at what point involvement was correlated with higher rates of retention, how over-involvement correlated with lower rates of retention, the strategies we’re developing to promote student success, and why every student affairs division should take the data-backed approach.
