Professor Tinto is a Distinguished University Professor at Syracuse University and is the premier scholar on student engagement and retention in higher education. He has consulted widely with federal and state agencies, with independent research firms, foundations, and with two- and four-year institutions on a broad range of higher educational issues. His most recent book, Leaving College 2nd Ed. (2012), published by the University of Chicago Press, lays out a theory and policy perspective on student success that is considered the benchmark by which work on these issues are judged.
These articles will provide context and perspective on what Dr. Tinto will be discussing with our campus community.
