Student Affairs Faculty and Staff Study Recommendations for Students’ Retention and Persistence

Posted on 3/14/2018 2:18:28 PM

Nearly 60 colleagues from across the Division of Student Affairs recently attended a winter workshop addressing the recommendations of IUP’s Preliminary Diversity Action Plan, as well as IUP’s Task Force on Undergraduate Retention/Persistence (TOUR).

An account of the small group discussions during the workshop on January 19, 2018, including the first in a series of “retention rap” videos, can be found on the division’s Retention and Persistence web page. The division, in 2017–18, has committed to engage with students and embrace division members’ roles as educators, to collaborate and partner in advancing institutional priorities related to student success, to become more informed about student retention, and to leverage professional development opportunities by attending division-wide workshops.
