Retention Strategies

 The four goals we want to achieve:

1.  Achieve an annual return rate of 61% for first-time full-time baccalaureate degree seeking students

2.  Achieve an annual return rate of 50% of students who had between 7% and 57% of financial need met

3.  Achieve an annual return rate of 70% for Black, Non-Hispanic students

4.  Achieve an annual return rate increase of 3%, this is for all students

There are six main strategies that we want to entire campus to focus on:

Strategy 1

Align the admissions process and all promotions with student's perceptions of actual experience

Strategy 2

Improve advising to ensure systematic interactions within the first six weeks of each semester (use of RetentionRT)

Strategy 3

Promote and strengthen academic advising support offered through the Resnick Learning Center

Strategy 4

Develop survival programming for students who are academically at risk both before and after they enter Delhi

Strategy 5

Develop approaches to address unmet financial needs (Scholarships, Loans, Counseling and Campus Employment)

Strategy 6

Develop a method to identify students' false perceptions of academic majors and then create tools to decrease the prevalence of those false perceptions
