Continue to Grow Drexel’s Enrollment: Progress
July 1, 2013 Update
New Retention Initiative
Developed by the Provost’s Office, Enrollment Management and Student Affairs, a new retention initiative will launch this fall for a pilot group of 60 freshmen. Led by Patricia Henry Russell, a senior mathematics teaching professor, the program will create a learning community with intense advising, opportunities to work with peer tutors, and extensive interaction with committed faculty. If it achieves its expected success in improving retention, the program will be expanded to include a larger group of new freshmen in future years.
