Student Involvement

What does this section include?

The student involvement strategies center on providing opportunities for students to contribute and build on knowledge and strengths they bring to the program, including skills in leadership, facilitation, teaching, planning, and advocacy.

What is the connection between student involvement and persistence?

Programs that invite students to take on new roles and responsibilities find that this recognition of their abilities supports persistence. Engaging all students in collaborative, life-relevant activities that draw on their experience and have an impact on issues that affect them, builds persistence by demonstrating to students the value of learning and acting together.
