2. Problem Statement The problem, as indicated in this study, involved a large private university that was experiencing retention decline of up to 30% in undergraduate students after they complete their 4th course.

11. Open Enrollment  Easy access  No entrance exams required  No waitlists  Little or no application fees  Underserved populations  Attractive to high risk students  Attract diverse populations  High pressure enrollment

12. Expected Outcomes  Identify retention factors  Implement  Change in retention rates  Increase in graduation rates  Improve faculty communication  Improve student services  Provide resources for at risk students

13. Measurement Outcomes  Student surveys  Identify trends  Increase retention by 5%  1.5 standard deviation or greater in the level of retention  Create positive change  Increase student satisfaction

14. Solution Strategy  Identify risk factors  Implement new student services program  Offer resources such as on campus child care, on-campus housing, employment assistance  Increase faculty communication and interaction  Update learning environments  Remediation for low high school achievers

15. Results  Compare both survey results  Document change in student satisfaction  Solution strategy emulation  Program can be replicated  New services provide needed support  Higher retention after implementation  Lower drop rates after implementation

16. Recommendation  Revisit the costs associated with new student services and revise as necessary  Select committee to oversee program  Review and revise annually  Speaking opportunities at other colleges to share program success.  Publish articles in education journals about the solution strategy success.
