  • It’s All About Relationships!
    “When students participate in focus groups are asked if they ever considered dropping out of college, many students say they have.
    And when asked what helped them stay in college, students’ answers, almost without exception, are about relationships.
    They talk about a specific person, whom they mention by name
    – a faculty member, an advisor, an administrative support professional –
    who inspired them to stay.”
    ---Dr. Kay McClenney – Director
