Nov. 14 Chancellor’s Town Hall to focus on retention and graduation

Chancellor Town Hall
2017 Chancellor Town Hall on retention and graduation

Faculty and staff are encouraged to join Chancellor Venkat Reddy and Vice Chancellor Chuck Litchfield to discuss ideas for improving retention and graduation rates for students during a Town Hall event at 2-3:30 p.m. Nov. 14 in Berger Hall.

UCCS experienced a 2.4 percent increase in the retention rate for fall 2018 with a record 1,363 students returning to campus for their second year. The rate improved to 67.2 percent, and the university set 72 percent as a goal by 2023.

Retention and graduation were the topics of a Town Hall event a year ago, when a capacity crowd of 125 faculty and staff brainstormed how to provide the needed resources and systems for student success. The topic is also the focus of a subcommittee of the Strategic Enrollment Team formed in fall 2017.

Refreshments will be served. No RSVP is required.
