  • Capstone Project - The Creation of a Campus Culture for Student Success, literature review. This review compares three articles by leading enrolment management professionals on retention and student success to my primary text, Strategic Enrolment Intelligence. The central message of the text on retention is bringing together stakeholders from across the campus to share responsibility for student success from enrolment through to graduation. I explored how the articles supported or contrasted the idea of a retention champion  and how some  their proposed strategies are currently being utilized at my institution and where we had the opportunity to further student success in future at UBC.
