Proactive Advising: A Retention-Based Student Success Intervention

About a quarter of Ontario’s incoming college students do not graduate from their programs, for a broad range of reasons.

There is a well-recognized solution: the support of an academic advisor who can reach out early, before challenges start, and help students navigate any circumstances that are getting in the way of success. Such services are widely available at Canadian postsecondary institutions. So why do many students still fall through the cracks, and how can colleges and universities do a better job of ensuring they don’t?

Learn how to improve student supports and overall retention rates on the CSSIC website.
