Retention Action Project


The goal of this Action Project team will be to study and recommend institution-wide student retention strategies, including broad-based initiatives designed to keep students progressing toward degrees, as well as systems related to MCC's ERP system, Datatel Colleague. While many retention initiatives have existed on our campus, this Action Project team will be a cross-functional work group that recognizes student retention as a college-wide effort that is not located in any single area or department. This new Action Project is an outgrowth of a previous CQI team focused on implementing two Datatel modules, Wait List and Retention Alert. With the Wait List implementation complete, many of the team members working on the Retention Alert module will transition to this new Action Project team.
