Title:First-year programs: A practice brief based on BEAMS project outcomes
Organization:Institute for Higher Education Policy
Short Description:One of a series highlighting key practices undertaken by some of the many successful BEAMS schools during the project's five years of data collection and action plan implementation, this practice brief points out the first-year student initiatives undertaken at four institutions.
Annotation:During 2003–07, the Building Engagement and Attainment for Minority Students (BEAMS) project fostered data-based campus change initiatives at more than 100 four-year Historically Black, Hispanic-Serving, and Tribal colleges and universities to increase student engagement and learning. This practice brief highlights the first-year student initiatives undertaken at four institutions. The focus on project implementation and accomplishments demonstrates how these projects might be replicated and how emphasis on the first-year experience can ultimately result in increases in student engagement and success.
