Student Retention Taskforce

The function of the Student Retention Taskforce is to assist in the social and academic acclimation of a student's successful transition into campus life and culture. The functions will include:

  • Bridging the gap from high school to college for students.
  • Paring incoming first-year students with sophomore students, who act as mentors supporting students in education and motivation throughout the academic year.

The Chair and Vice-Chair (or Co-Chairs) of the Taskforce will serve on the TALC Leadership Team.
