Description: This paper from Jason A. Finkelstein of Bronx Community College discusses the college's "Coordinated Freshman Program," which was designed to improve retention of at-risk students. This paper would be very useful for similar colleges looking to improve student retention and success, as it focuses specifically on what worked well for Bronx Community College. Successful strategies for the college included listening to student needs, being proactive in program design, assessing the impact of programs and helping students to feel that they are recognized and appreciated.
