Even as the number of students attending college has more than doubled in the past forty years, it is still the case that nearly half of all college students in the United States will not complete their degree within six years. It is clear that much remains to be done toward improving student success. For more than twenty years, Vincent Tinto’s pathbreaking book Leaving College has been recognized as the definitive resource on student retention in higher education. Now, with Completing College, Tinto offers administrators a coherent framework with which to develop and implement programs to promote completion. Deftly distilling an enormous amount of research, Tinto identifies the essential conditions enabling students to succeed and continue on within institutions. Especially during the early years, he shows that students thrive in settings that pair high expectations for success with structured academic, social, and financial support, provide frequent feedback and assessments of their performance, and promote their active involvement with other students and faculty. And while these conditions may be worked on and met at different institutional levels, Tinto points to the classroom as the center of student education and life, and therefore the primary target for institutional action. Improving retention rates continues to be among the most widely studied fields in higher education, and Completing College carefully synthesizes the latest research and, most importantly, translates it into practical steps that administrators can take to enhance student success.

Die meisten Vergewaltiger kannten ihre Opfer vorher, wodurch die Strafverfolgung und die gerichtliche Suche nach der Wahrheit oft komplex und undurchsichtig ist und die vergewaltigten Frauen ein zweites Mal traumatisiert werden. In seinem neuen Buch beschäftigt sich Jon Krakauer mit Vergewaltigungsfällen in der amerikanischen Universitätsstadt Missoula. Minutiös und doch einfühlsam skizziert er die Ereignisse, die eine ganze Gesellschaft an der Frage nach Recht und Unrecht, Wahrheit und Lüge verzweifeln lassen, er spricht mit den Beschuldigten und den Opfern und schildert packend, wie schmerzhaft die Suche nach Gerechtigkeit und Sühne bei Gericht sein kann.

Viele Wege führen zu Gott! Mitch Albom ist überrascht, als Albert Lewis, der betagte Rabbi seiner Heimatgemeinde in New Jersey, ihn darum bittet, bei seinem Tod die Trauerrede für ihn zu halten. Er versteht nicht, weshalb der Rabbi ihn dafür ausgewählt hat, denn den Bezug zum Glauben hat er schon lange verloren. Schließlich willigt er unter der Bedingung ein, den Rabbi besser kennenlernen zu dürfen. Und so erfährt er Albert Lewis während der kommenden acht Jahre bei ihren Treffen nicht nur als einen engagierten Mann der Kirche, sondern auch als einen ebenso klugen wie humorvollen Menschen. In dieser Zeit begegnet Mitch Albom in Detroit jedoch auch Henry Covington, einem Pastor mit krimineller Vergangenheit, dessen Schicksal eine fast unmöglich scheinende Wandlung erfahren hat. Die beiden Männer lehren Mitch Albom, die Welt und den Glauben mit neuen Augen zu sehen – und er nimmt aus den Gesprächen mit ihnen kostbare Anstöße und Erkenntnisse mit, die sein Leben verändern.

Take an in-depth look at the difficulty in gaining traction at the institutional level in improving student retention and degree completion rates—especially at larger four year institutions where size, complexity, and multiplicity of structures and processes present particular challenges. This volume offers a way for institutional leaders to better focus their time, energy, and resources in their retention effort by framing the way they think about it using the 4 Ps of retention strategy: profile, progress, process, and promise. This simple framework challenges long-standing, traditional assumptions about student retention that can distract and dilute institutional efforts, and helps keep those efforts sharply and singularly focused on improving retention and degree completion outcomes. This is the 161st volume of this Jossey-Bass series. Addressed to higher education decision makers on all kinds of campuses, New Directions for Higher Education provides timely information and authoritative advice about major issues and administrative problems confronting every institution.
