Retention Response Committee


The main objective of the Retention Response Committee is to improve student retention at Seattle Central College. The committee offers faculty the opportunity to learn more about the potential barriers facing students which might impact their learning and their persistence in college.

Examples of workshops which have been offered to faculty:

  • Syllabus as a Learning Contract

  • Information Age Teaching
  • Learning Disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorders
  • Effective Classroom Accommodation Strategies for Students with Psychological Disabilities
