Registration is Now Open for the National Symposium on Student Retention

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

The National Symposium on Student Retention (NSSR) 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.

Program Details

We’ve got a great program laid out for #NSSR17, starting with a fun get together and an excellent line-up of pre-conference workshops. We added Roundtable Discussions to the Call for Proposals this year and had a terrific response. As usual, the full schedule will be posted by mid-October, after the decision-making process on presentations is complete.

Our conference activities will center around the Grand Sandestin, steps away from the marina, tennis courts and a 5-acre nature park. Also next door, the pedestrian Village of Baytowne Wharf features restaurants, family fun-zones, shopping and live entertainment. From tranquil Choctawhatchee Bay, it’s a free and easy ride to the 7-mile strand of white sand beach.

November 6-9 in Destin, Florida

We will get together at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort to focus on current retention and graduation issues and solutions. The ideas and strategies you discuss here- in concurrent sessions and informally at the resort facilities -could help move retention efforts at your campus forward.
