My blog discusses the important and complex subjects of college completion, college success, student risk factors (for failing), college readiness, and academic preparation. I will explore the pieces of the college puzzle that heavily influence, if not determine, college success rates.
New Website on College Persistence and Preparation
USC has established a Center for Enrollment Research, Policy, and Practice. I spoke at the opening conference August 5. There are a number of new papers on the website at the core of this blog.Sandy Baum did a comprehensive paper on student aid. There is a debate on testing between Wayne Camara of College Board and Saul Geiser of University of California.
My favorites were on the lack of college policy, central leadership, and initiatives on college persistence and college completion
by Don Hossler of the University of Indiana and David Kalsbeek at Depaul. No one is in charge of retention at colleges and staff resources minimal. See it all at www.usc.edu/cerpp.
