A new initiative takes aim at improving NSU’s student retention and graduation rates.
The newly established Spartan Student Success Center is expected
to increase the retention rate among fall 2012 freshmen and decrease the
attrition rate for second-year students, improve student achievement and
reduce the amount of time it takes students to complete their degrees.
Under the Center’s umbrella, in collaboration with other University
offices, a full complement of academic support services will be provided.
Those services include tutoring, academic enrichment, mentoring (life skills,
the NSU citizen, engagement), advising, co-curricular activities, service
learning activities, external scholarship opportunities, academic enrichment,
a sophomore year program and faculty/staff development. (Click here for the entire article)
