Enrollment / Retention Management Committee

At our inaugural conference on Student Engagement in 2012, Dr. George Kuh shared a set of educational practices that he called high impact, because of their known relationship to student success and persistence in the university setting.As a result of that workshop, continued discussions have taken place about how these practices are implemented in our instructional methods, programs, and services offered to FGCU students.

As a means of sharing the innovative work we are doing across campus, FGCU is hosting the Annual Conference on Student Engagement and Persistence, FGCU in Action: High Impact Educational Practices coordinated by the Enrollment and Retention Management Committee of the Planning and Budget Council (PBC).

I encourage you to save the date and make your commitment to participating in this important event.
