Event Details:

A Creating a Stop-out Program to Increase Student Completion webinar will take place April 25, from 2-3:30 p.m., in Oland Hall 103.

Many institutions report that retention and graduation rates for students are declining due to a 'stop-out' phenomenon. Employment, family and financial issues are just some of the complex logistical concerns contributing to students' suspension of study.

Institutional stop-out programs offer the support, counselling, and procedural engagement that help these students return to school and complete their degrees. However, implementing a stop-out program carries challenges from gathering the right data to strategic outreach and creating campus-wide buy-in. (Note: this event is happening concurrently on the Fredericton campus.)
