Retaining students is a key initiative for institutions. This webinar will highlight how to incorporate BCSSE and NSSE data to help inform your institution's retention efforts. In this webinar we will discuss research findings relating engagement and retention as well as explore ways in which NSSE and BCSSE data can be used to supplement retention efforts on your campus. We will also highlight examples of how other institutions have used their NSSE and BCSSE data in their retention plans. Finally, we will encourage participants to think of their own retention efforts and how they might use their NSSE or BCSSE to help improve their efforts. Attendees should make sure they have copies of both the BCSSE and NSSE surveys as this session will identify specific items from each. Copies of the surveys can be found at nsse.iub.edu. We ask that you submit any specific questions you have or barriers you have encountered when using BCSSE and/or NSSE data to help with retention efforts. Please list questions &/or topics that you would like to see addressed in the Webinar in the box below. Additional questions can be raised via the chat feature during the Webinar.
