We know from research that the first year of university is critical to students’ long-term outcomes. Students who are engaged and who learn how to succeed early in their university careers, are more likely to achieve and persist with their studies. The design of our programs and courses, our assessment practices, the culture of our classrooms and our teaching strategies can all make contributions to scaffolding students’ capacity for independent learning.
Griffith's Student Retention Strategy contains many of the strategies for student success outlined in Succeeding @ Griffith (2006), but increases the focus on the extent and quality of implementation.
This document includes the Implementation Plan 2012-2014.
The new strategy, funded through the Vice Chancellor's Strategic Fund, will be supported through the establishment of the role of Student Success Advisor that will provide advice and support to undergraduate students.
Griffith's earlier retention strategy was outlined in Succeeding @ Griffith.
