Retention through a holistic approach! With Cruiser, all aspects of a student’s academic experience can be easily gathered for the purposes of getting to know your students’ WHOLE story.

Extended Abstract

Student's persistence (retention) is on everyone's minds these days. We believe taking a holistic approach keeps your students on track and successful. We discuss how each student's story is unique and changing as they work toward their academic goal. Multiple areas of the college play a role in the student's success, which means they need to fully understand all aspects of the student. Cruiser products are designed to bring the moving parts together and tell the WHOLE story--so everyone is working on the same page-- toward the ultimate goal of engaging the student and supporting them to the finish line.
