Student Support Services

Retention and Student Success Advisory Group

We develop strategies to improve retention and student success at Nazareth.

The Advisory Group, convened in fall 2013, builds upon previous Nazareth work and national best practices. We combine data informed strategies with broader efforts to build and enhance a culture of student success at the college. Learn more about retention and student success from these links.

Definition of Student Success

The true measure of student success is how well students are prepared to accomplish their current and future academic, personal, and professional goals through the development of knowledge, a sense of responsibility and self-reliance, and a connection to the college and wider community.
