Strategies for Success in a Post-Pandemic Era
Even before the coronavirus upended it, higher education’s approach to retaining, supporting, and graduating underserved students was fraught with contradictions. At the same time that colleges invested in many of those students, college degrees became increasingly the property of the privileged. Stagnant wages and increasing tuition meant paying for college became out of reach for more students and families.
Administrators and professors committed to student success are thinking from all angles about how to retain their students before it’s too late.
