Persistence and Retention 2 Retention is at the top of any topics by the Provost, President and even Board of Trustees when it comes to higher institutions. Retention has always been the focus but more importantly more than lately as institutions retentions rates have dropped tremendously. Current and relevant research on student retention are necessary for developing and evaluating successful retention interventions at the community college level (Wild & Ebbers, 2002). Persistence is key. Tinto added academic integration and goal commitment to Spady's model. Tinto based his model on the conjecture that the more a student was socially and academically involved in college activities, the more likely the student would be to persist. In order, for a student to want success they must be persistence. Persistent to complete down the path that they have continued down. As educators, we are to be there for the good and the bad – whether we agree or do not agree with the decision that a student is making. That student must be persistence with all of those they encounter, in all aspects. As children, we never listened to our parents, but our parents taught us as individuals to make a decision that is best for us and to go with our gut feeling. I would agree that lining with persistence is part of a successful key that stands for. According to the City Community College institution data, the retention rate is 24%. The current credit enrollment is over 16,000 and majority of the students that attend the institution are female. The purpose of this study was to determine what student characteristics increase

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
