First Steps for Student Success and Retention

An All-Campus Retention Initiative of Provost Roy Koch

The First Steps for Student Success and Retention (FSSSR) committee was convened by Provost Roy Koch in August 2007. FSSSR reviewed retention and graduation rates data supplied by the Office of Institutional Research and Planning, reviewed literature on best practices and examined certain policies/practices at Portland State that may impact student success. From these activities the group has made initial recommendations to Provost Koch for implementation.
