Cultural Imperatives: Identification & Retention

Strategic Recommendation: Encourage and provide access for all qualified students within the University’s capacity, and successfully recruit a broad spectrum of potential scholars who embrace the vision and future of Arts and Sciences.

  • New student programs that foster community, establish meaningful support structures to promote curiosity and success (see Steinberg white paper for specifics). Possible measurements include student surveys and student retention data.
  • Improved alumni support network for undergraduates. A possible measurement is information about occurrences of alumni contacts or meetings from Development office.
  • Improved campus climate, measured by longitudinal broad climate survey.
  • Increased diversity in student, faculty, and staff populations.
