Be a part of the most important conversation centered on student persistence
Our inaugural summer read features distinguished university professor emeritus Dr. Vincent Tinto's latest book Completing College - Rethinking Institutional Action.
We will discuss Dr. Tinto's research framework and discuss actions and interventions institutions can and should pursue to solve the college completion crisis.
Meet Dr. Tinto and Make Meaningful Connections
Registrants will have the opportunity to meet Dr. Tinto via an exclusive, live virtual forum organized by EdSights. After a brief introduction from Dr. Tinto, attendees will be broken into small groups to discuss key elements of the reading. Dr. Tinto will "make the rounds" and interact with these groups throughout the program.

Award-Winning Persistence Scholar
