A formula for successful student retention

A Nationwide Problem

The 2013 Inside Higher Ed Survey of College and University Business Officers found that 92 percent of business officers say “retaining current students is a very important strategy to increase revenue in the near future.” Yet many universities struggle with creating a holistic approach to improving student retention.

Blackboard can help.

Our Data-Driven Retention Services:

  • Improve existing student retention practices
  • Transform existing data analytics to dashboards and programs to drive improvement
  • Deploy rapid student outreach campaigns


    Blackboard’s Retention Framework and Strategy guides you through a framework that helps identify strengths and weaknesses, and recommends a complete approach to improve your retention rates and drive financial benefits.


    Blackboard’s Retention Dashboard and Program Strategy delivers retention reports and dashboards that give you insight and analysis of your student risk profiles. We also provide programming recommendations that are based on the likelihood of student success and consideration of institutional resource capabilities.


    Our Student Welcome Call Program and Student Re-registration Call Program provide you with a wealth of data on incoming freshman and returning students. These solutions are affordable, quick to implement and deliver a strong return on investment. Ultimately, you are able to focus internal resources where they will have the most impact.
