How You Can Retain Students to Graduation and Help Them Become Gainfully Employed After College

"Some argue that continuing to college means giving up the chance to get a job immediately out of high school and begin earning money. This is certainly true; however, the delay in earning can pay off. The average 4-year bachelor's degree holder, for instance, earns nearly $1 million dollars more over the course of their lifetime than someone who holds only a high school diploma."


Retaining students to graduation, and then helping them to become gainfully employed after graduation, is financially advantageous to the students, the institutions, the companies that hire them, the lenders that financed their education, and to society as a whole as a more educated workforce enhances innovation and promotes global competitiveness.

Join your peers from round the country in this webinar, where expert speaker Aaron W. Hughey talks about the best practices to facilitate students in completing their college and learn various strategies that can be adopted for your own campus. This highly interactive webinar will help you learn the current, evidence-based best practices for enhancing college student's persistence to graduation.

Get concrete recommendations as to how these services and activities can be successfully implemented in a variety of higher education environments. Equal emphasis will be placed on helping both institutions as well as individual students achieve their mutually-complementary objectives: graduation and employment.
