This book is premised on a very powerful social/educational concern
about college retention rates: one-third of first-year students
seriously consider leaving college during their first term, and
only half of all students who start college ultimately graduate.
This book examines the first year of college from a variety of
perspectives to paint a comprehensive picture of the intersecting
challenges facing today's students and higher education
institutions. Technological advances, increases in college
attendance costs, and increasing political pressure on colleges to
prove their value have changed the landscape of the first year of
college, but researchers have identified new approaches to improve
student and institutional success that have shown considerable
success and promise. In this comprehensive volume, top educational
researchers explore topics of student success, persistence, and
retention in the first year of college.
