Retaining students to achieve successful outcomes is a complex and challenging task and is a vital performance indicator for all education institutions globally. Over the past few decades, the fundamentals of successful student outcomes in tertiary education remain unchanged. Key factors impeding success include poor preparation for tertiary study, unsatisfactory academic experience, and lack of social integration.

As part of a 2020 Strategic Project on Student Retention, Learning & Teaching Services has been investigating and evaluating current practice both within our colleges and externally, with the aim of surfacing and sharing strategies that work and developing resources and tools for colleges and campuses to assist in their retention efforts.

In this event, Maria Spies and Dr Suneeti Rekhari will unpack retention and dive deeper into the impact of current retention projects. They will look at the processes used to plan, implement and evaluate the retention interventions. By examining the early indicators and outcomes, they will discuss what these initial findings may mean for the next steps in addressing retention.
