The Pell Institute Retention Toolkit is designed for leaders at postsecondary institutions to identify and alleviate gaps in the success of low-income, first-generation and underrepresented students. Currently, few institutions understand the extent of differences in retention and graduation rates by student income. The Retention Toolkit arms four-year institutions with the tools to undertake more informed and coordinated approaches to retain low-income students, who have been shown in national studies to persist and graduate at rates much lower than their more affluent peers.
The Pell Institute Retention Toolkit consists of four customizable tools:
By working with our consultants to use these tools, college leaders can become change agents who use data to set priorities, choose strategies, and evaluate outcomes. This process of data-driven change is a key indicator of institutional quality and of a commitment to improving student success. The Five Pell Institute retention tools are packaged together and can be tailored to each campus' needs.
