Ensuring student success

Institutions are often characterized along a continuum of prestige which then becomes a driver for student application and admission interest. However, the more important criteria are student/institution fit and the resulting outcome of student success and degree completion. The issue of student/institution fit is even more important for U.S. domestic cultural minority groups and international students.

For institutions concerned about more effectively serving international students, Steven Mintz' "Pathways to Student Success" offers advice on issues to address. While offered in relation to enhancing U.S. domestic students, the recommendations are equally applicable to international students. When international students consider their options in the U.S.A. or other host countries, these could very well be the conditions that will result in success or failure in completing their degrees.
