Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Retention has, in the last few years, become a major topic of research and scrutiny. Retention merits close examination, because forecasters project that a 23% decline will occur nationally among traditional students by 1997 (Lonabocker, 1982). Due to this fact, it becomes apparent to administrators, faculty and student personnel professionals that the future of colleges and universities depends, to a large degree, on their ability to minimize the attrition rate.
