Yes We Must Coalition Webinar: Strategies That Promote Transfer Student Persistence & Success

May 17, 2019
12:00 PM

Synopsis via Yes We Must Coalition: 

We know that data should drive decision-making regarding the success of our low-income students, but we also know that not all of the individual schools in our Coalition have the resources to efficiently collect, analyze and apply the information available in ways most likely to promote student success. To address that issue, 19 members of the YWM Coalition have collaborated to design, execute and analyze data using a longitudinal design focusing on key variables known to be associated with student persistence and retention. The resulting data are allowing us to make comparisons across and within institutions.

This webinar is the fourth in a series that showcases the practices of those institutions that had comparatively strong outcomes with regard to particular sub populations of students. Presenters from Coker College (SC). Muskingum University (OH), and Trocaire College (NY) will describe the strategies they feel have led to the comparatively high levels of persistence and retention of  transfer students who entered their institutions in 2015 and 2016.
