Second Annual Retention Conference June 15, 2018 Session Objectives Review the research on the connection between faculty engagement
and retention Discuss best practices in faculty-student engagement Faculty-Student Interaction Impact
Faculty concern for students has a positive, statistically significant effect on student persistence even after adjusting for a variety of precollege characteristics, including students intellectual ability and academic preparedness. Student-faculty contact outside the classroom correlates more strongly with college satisfaction
than any other single variable. The frequency of student-faculty interaction correlate significantly with every academic achievement outcome including: college GPA, degree attainment, graduation with honors, and enrollment in graduate or professional school.
Best Practices in Faculty-Student Engagement Best Practices Announce that office visits from students are welcome. (This sends a message to students that they value out-of-class
interaction with them.) Write a personal note to students struggling in class that invites, requests, or requires them to make an office visit. Write a personal note to students doing well in a class to offer kudos and positive reinforcement. Interact personally with students immediately
before/after class. Carry out volunteer work with students. More Best Practices Visit with students on their turf (e.g., student cafeteria, student union, or residence halls). Participate in co-curricular experiences with
students (e.g., cultural and recreational events on or off campus). Meet with prospective students during campus visits. Participate in new student orientation. Serve as a mentor for a special program (e.g., First
More Best Practices Serve as faculty advisor for a student club/organization. Participate in summer bridge/college immersion programs. Contribute to residential life programs (serving as a
guest speaker or conducting test-review sessions in student residences) or participate in a faculty-inresidence program. Work with students on relevant campus committees (student retention or student engagement committee). More Best Practices
Participate with students on faculty-student research teams (as part of an undergraduate research program). Participate with students on faculty-student teaching teams (partnering with an upper-division student as co-instructors in a first-year seminar).
Use technology to create opportunities for interaction; asynchronous chats and online office hours. Serve on prestigious scholarship review/mentor More Best Practices Suggest creating a devoted fund, specifically for the
purpose of funding faculty/student meals or discussions over cups of tea or coffee; fund or endow a program at a local food or coffee establishment for the purpose of faculty/student mentoring. For faculty not teaching a first year course, attend informal evening gatherings with students. Lead student academic teams such as Model UN,
