Paper by Three Faculty and Staff Accepted at National Conference

Three UHD employees recently co-authored a paper that was selected by the National Symposium on Student Retention to be a part of the group's 10th annual conference.

The paper, "Investigating the Influence of Four Interventions on College Algebra Achievement," was co-authored by Danya Corkin, senior research associate; Bill Waller, associate dean of University College; and and Isidro Grau, director of the Academic Support Center.

According to one reviewer, "[It was a] very enlightening combination of approaches to a problem shared across the country. With the large sample size and multiple semesters' worth of data for different interventions, this study makes a valuable contribution to the literature on student success in college math."

The National Symposium on Student Retention is focused on sharing current research and evidence-based strategies which support student success from enrollment through graduation.This year's conference will be Nov. 3-5 in Louisville, Kentucky.
