NSSR 2021 LIVE Will be Virtual, Nov. 2-5

The National Symposium on Student Retention offers a complete educational experience exploring the latest evidence-based research on post-secondary retention and graduation. All concurrent sessions will be presented live, providing many opportunities for networking and collaboration among colleagues from diverse fields and institutions.


The conference team did an AMAZING job of communicating in preparation for the event. As one who presented a paper, I was in awe of their timeliness, encouragement, and support throughout the process. I can’t imagine how the conference could have been managed any more efficiently. Great job!
