Silo to Synergy: Building a Comprehensive Retention Effort

Many innovative programs designed to promote student success exist in isolation. Few people outside the unit offering the program are aware of its existence or impact. To transform this, a university-wide retention task force cataloged and publicized these programs. Among those innovations were cross-unit collaborations in residence halls.
