Abstract

Retention is a hot topic at colleges today, especially on the community college level. Retention rates on average are very low across the country, and the government is considering ways to combat this issue. In some places state funding will be based partly on the graduation and success of students, and accrediting bodies are looking more closely at this performance measure as well. Community colleges in rural areas, like the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB), have the extra challenge of a high percentage of students coming to school academically underprepared, with a low socioeconomic status, and first generation; a triad for student attrition. To address retention concerns, UACCBís campus leaders created a three-prong approach that was supported by the institutionís Higher Learning Commission Pathways Project and Title III grant. This paper will detail the development and implementation of mandatory orientation, intrusive advising, and an early alert system as tools to increase student engagement and support of all students at the institution.
