We know that data should drive decision-making regarding the success of our low-income students, but we also know that not all of the individual schools in our Coalition have the resources to efficiently collect, analyze and apply the information available in ways most likely to promote student success. To address that issue, 19 members of the YWM Coalition have collaborated to design, execute and analyze data using a longitudinal design focusing on key variables known to be associated with student persistence and retention. The resulting data are allowing us to make comparisons across and within institutions.
This webinar is the third in a series that showcases the practices of those institutions that had comparatively strong outcomes with regard to particular sub populations of students. Presenters from Keuka College (NY) and Union College (KY) will describe the strategies that they feel have led to the comparatively high levels of persistence and retention they are achieving with student athletes who entered in 2015 and 2016.
