Title:PERSIST: A comprehensive guide for student success in higher education
Source:http://www.ecmcfoundation.org/download_PERSIST....
Date:2006
Organization:ECMC Foundation
Short Description:“PERSIST: A Comprehensive Guide for Student Success in Higher Education” is a toolkit for postsecondary educators to help at-risk students successfully navigate the varied aspects of the college experience. This guide was created to provide tools to help postsecondary professionals increase the success rates of those students who are the most at risk for dropping out – first-generation college-going students, those from low-income families, commuter students, and nontraditional age students.
Annotation:“PERSIST: A Comprehensive Guide for Student Success in Higher Education” is a toolkit for postsecondary educators to help at-risk students successfully navigate the varied aspects of the college experience. Success in higher education is an issue for all students. Currently, only 38 percent of all first-time postsecondary students at two-year institutions and 65 percent of those at four-year institutions graduate within six years. However, the graduation rates are even worse for low-income, first-generation college-going students. Low-income students are less than half as likely to earn a bachelor’s degree as higher-income students. Clearly, access to higher education alone is not enough to provide educational opportunity to all when low-income, first-generation college-going students are the least likely to graduate. This guide was created to provide tools to help postsecondary professionals increase the success rates of those students who are the most at risk for dropping out – first-generation college-going students, those from low-income families, commuter students, and nontraditional age students.
