Title:Establishing a Retention Project Management Office
Description:Vantage Point works with colleges and universities to develop and implement student retention strategies. Achieving results requires a commitment to coordination across several departments. Institutions often attempt to achieve this coordination through special committees, which can be effective for identifying initiatives and building stakeholder buy-in but implementation often falls short. This session will discuss how a structured people/process/technology approach to retention can help institutions reach their retention goals.
