Helping Students to Succeed

 

There has been concern expressed about student attrition rates and faculty members are urged to make special efforts to look for early signs that first-year students may need help.

Studies of first-year retention suggest that dropout behavior usually begins to surface in the first few weeks of the fall semester. The following list of resources will help Penn State Behrend faculty members provide students with the direction and assistance they may need to succeed.
