NSF Grantees Poster Session
At University of X, a mid-sized, private institution, studies show that students who are behind in their degree progress are not retained at similar rates as their on-track cohort and can be considered “at risk”. With NSF support, we implemented a voluntary program three years ago to support first year students who are considered “at-risk” of leaving the School of Engineering because they are not on-track although they are in good standing academically. The program includes multiple interventions targeted at increasing the persistence and ultimately the retention of these at-risk students, including among others, year-long counseling focused on community building and an extensive summer scholar program for rising sophomores that allows them to regain cohort status academically. In this poster, we focus on the various iterations we made to the program based on ongoing assessments.
