Improving access, engagement and retention.
In this session we will discuss four strategies used in an Australian multi-campus university to improve access, participation and student engagement and retention. UniReach, UniKey are designed to improve access, participation and retention of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds. CommonTime and the Tiered Mentoring Program have been designed to improve academic and social integration and extend linkages across years. The strategies will be discussed together with supporting research data that has informed their development.
