First-Year Students Record Retention


Chancellor Kelly Damphousse set two important goals for his second year at Arkansas State University, and today at the annual Faculty Conference he was able to announce the achievement of a record-level of first-year student retention.

With less than a week before the opening day of classes for the fall 2018 semester, Arkansas State is on pace to have a 77.1 percent first-year retention rate.  If the current trend is maintained through the 11th day of the fall semester, it will break the fall 2014 record of 76.0 percent.

“All the credit for this first step goes to you, our faculty, and to the staff members working with you, and I am so very proud of what we have achieved together,” Damphousse told the assembly of A-State faculty members.  “It began with everyone pitching in, everyone believing that Every Red Wolf Counts.  We can say yes, here are the results.”   MORE
