Thank you for your interest
in information on college student retention consulting.
It Does Not Have to Cost a Lot of Money
Colleges and universities DO NOT have to spend a lot of money to begin, continue or to move to the next level retaining the students they recruited and enrolled. Although most of the resources are available on campus, often a “voice from outside” the organization or institution can be helpful in reaching an understanding of retention/attrition and enrollment management issues and what needs to be done to help students meet their academic and personal goals. All most colleges and universities need is a "jump start", that is, a retention presentation or workshop to get going or keep moving.Current Efforts
Currently colleges want to maximize their retention efforts. Yet, U.S. retention figures have not improved over time, even with large amounts of money expended on programs and services. Students are no better integrated into the formal and informal academic and social systems of colleges today than twenty years ago. It is time to apply common sense.
What We Offer
We offer a number of consulting options that cover retention issues along with how
colleges can implement programs and services to help students meet their
individual academic and personal goals. Presentations are also available for
organizations, meetings and conferences.
This program is designed for organizations, meetings, conferences, college faculty, administrators, and staff who are directly responsible for developing and implementing recruitment and retention efforts. This is a presentation of approximately 1 ½ to 2 hours not counting Q & A’s at the end of the session.

Retention and Attrition Workshop
A program developed specifically for your organization, meeting, conference, college or university in consultation with the senior management team.
Over the years I have read and scored grants for the U.S. Department of Education. These include Upward Bound, Student Support Service, Ronald E. McNair Post baccalaureate Achievement Program Grants and the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE). In addition for the past three years I have been an examiner for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award (MBNQA) program through the U.S. Department of Commerce. This experience has afforded me the opportunity to know what is expected for each grant and grant category.
I can work with your grant writing team to assure that your grant application will receive the score and consideration it deserves. If you are interested in my services please contact me.
