Primary Objectives

For the next three years, WebCollege will be focusing on improving our online retention - this is our #1 priority.   We are hiring a .5 Retention Specialist to lead efforts and need the help of every online faculty member if we are going to be successful.  The WebCollege Faculty Advisory Committee will serve as our "advisory board" for this project and will help to identify and stage our strategies for success.  This is the most important task we have asked the WCFAC to deal with.  We REALLY need your ideas, concerns, passions and recommendations for how to first match the retention of our traditional classes (goal #1) and then become the new standard for student retention and success on campus (goal #2).
