Inside Athletics: November 27, 2012

& Faculty/Staff Speakers, Inside Athletics.

In today’s podcast, Dave is joined by Sue Kolb, the Assistant Athletic Director for Student Athlete Well-being.  They review the work that Sue did last year in tracking attendance and academic progress as a means of improving retention rates.  Sue outlines the program that was implemented, the follow-up work that was done and the results for the first year.  Together, they examine indicators of retention and academic success and talk about what we are doing this year as well as how the university is working together in a broader way to improve retention which helps the overall enrollment.
