  • 1.  Rethinking Retention

    There was a good column about student retention in today's Inside Higher Ed.

    As I look at the list of the various strategies I am thinking "which are the ones where academic librarians can make a difference".


    Personalized service. Participation in learning analytics. Alternate textbook and OER projects. Support for online students.


    I think there are more than a few ways where we can have an impact.


    I'm just not sure the folks in other academic offices perceive us as having a role in retention.
