12th Annual National Symposium on Student Retention

Norfolk, VA – October 31-November 3, 2016

We invite you to join your colleagues in higher education to participate in this important gathering.

The National Symposium on Student Retention offers a complete educational experience exploring the latest evidence-based research on post-secondary retention and graduation. The intimate, content-focused environment enhances the potential for networking and encourages collaboration among colleagues from diverse fields and institutions.

Meet Your Colleagues

Whether you begin with the optional Sunday morning outing to Colonial Williamsburg or the Monday evening Welcome Reception & Cruise, you’ll have plenty of time to get to know your colleagues. These informal discussions with peers from across the country can be just as valuable as the sessions for exploring approaches to student success.

On-site Registration

On-site registration will be available beginning at 6:30 pm Sunday, October 30th. Please check our Program Details and Registration pages for further information.
