Coralville, Iowa (PRWEB) January 05, 2016
How do colleges and universities retain students? How can academic advising successfully keep students on the path to graduation? How can assessment and early-alert strategies jump-start a retention effort?
Colleges and universities that have successfully answered retention questions like these are encouraged to apply for the Lee Noel and Randi Levitz Retention Excellence Awards, sponsored by Ruffalo Noel Levitz. Deadline for applications is March 18, 2016. Awards will be presented at the National Conference on Student Recruitment, Marketing, and Retention, to be held July 26-28, in Dallas.
The awards program was established to honor student retention and completion achievements of regionally accredited postsecondary institutions throughout North America. Since the awards program began in 1989, Ruffalo Noel Levitz has honored more than 160 two-year and four-year colleges and universities with Retention Excellence Awards.
Nominees are judged by a panel of higher education leaders on identifiable and measurable institutional outcomes, originality and creativity, clarity of focus, use of resources, and adaptability to other institutions. As a result of this national exposure, these award-winning programs serve as models of retention excellence to stimulate the creativity and energy of two-year and four-year institutions across the U.S. and Canada.
