Retention and time to degree:  A look at key factors and advising strategies

This fall President Schill announced the ambitious goal of increasing UO’s 4-year graduation rates by 10% by the year 2020.  Advising will no doubt play a key role in this effort.  Please join Kimberly Johnson and Grant Schoonover on July 7th from 11 am to noon at Education 117. Using UO data they’ll review factors important to retention and time to degree, and discuss advising strategies to promote student persistence and timely graduation.
