NPEC National Symposium on Postsecondary Student Success: Response Papers

The recommendations and opinions expressed by the authors of the commissioned papers are not necessarily those of the National Postsecondary Education Cooperative (NPEC).

As part of its National Symposium on Postsecondary Student Success, NPEC invited seven individuals to respond to the five papers on student success commissioned by NPEC (see Commissioned Papers for copies of the papers). The authors of the response papers were charged with relating their experiences and knowledge as researchers or policymakers to each of the commissioned papers, and were asked to identify alternative definitions of student success, research work that still needs to be done, and policy issues that need further consideration and discussion.
