JOIN US this March at the spectacular Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, Florida for three outstanding days of learning and sharing about student persistence, retention, and success in higher education. This is our seventh annual International Conference focused on students, bringing together top researchers, policymakers, and professionals involved in student retention and success at secondary schools and postsecondary institutions.

This year's conference will feature over 60 breakout and plenary sessions, plus pre-conference workshops, in a variety of student success areas at the secondary and postsecondary levels. Participants from middle and high schools, public and private two- and four-year institutions, and career colleges will be in attendance. Attendees will have the chance to interact with peers struggling with similar retention issues and gain insight on best practices and programs that work.

The CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS has been announced, and the early bird cut for presentations ends December 15, 2011. Other presentation requests will be open until January 31, 2012, but those in by the December 15th deadline will be given special consideration.

Follow the links to the left for additional information. In the meantime, please contact us at or 202-657-5207 if you have any questions. Discounts are provided for institutional groups of four or more.

I look forward to seeing you in Orlando!

Best regards,
