Summary
"Student success is now an institutional priority, but the uncomfortable truth is that helping more students thrive is hard. Despite notable gains at some colleges, many are struggling to raise retention and eliminate achievement gaps. Lists of exemplars and best practices often give more of a sense of what to do than how to do it. This Chronicle report lays out three guiding principles to jump-start student-success efforts or take them to the next level, identifying pitfalls along the way. It explains how breakthroughs often come from taking a step back from programs and tools to think about broad goals like effective teaching and applying student data. Plus, it offers 30 case studies of colleges around the country that are working to improve results. Get your copy of the report to ground your student-success efforts in the lessons of this evolving movement. Gain insights into: how to think beyond quick fixes and tackle broader issues and systems; strategies for approaching analytics, the educational experience, academic support and student well-being; how to reorient and become a student-centered institution; [and] advice for sustaining momentum and demonstrating impact in your ongoing work"--
