Imagine being able to significantly increase the persistence, retention, graduation and job placement rates of your students. This can be achieved, and we can help.
The Problem: More than 1 in 3 U.S. college students will drop out,i and recent college graduates are now more likely to be out of work than the population as a whole.ii Why?
Simply put, many students do not arrive at college with the skills necessary for them to maximize their potential. While numerous factors influence persistence, retention, and graduation rates, addressing the academic tenacity and psychology of the student is critical, and can galvanize students to seize the opportunities for learning that exist in their school environments.iii Key skills and attributes such as growth mindsets, goal-setting, self-regulation and self-control, social belonging and value affirmation are usually not included in most academic curriculums, leaving many students unprepared for the challenges they will face.
