1. Bennett, Elizabeth A. The Relationship between First-Year Student Retention and Type of Faculty at a Four-Year Public Research University: A Profile of Three Academic Colleges.

Degree: PhD, Higher Education (Education), 2017, Ohio University

Institutions of higher education face increased pressure from various constituents regarding accountability, transparency, and student success. College and university leaders continuously strive to find new ways to improve the performance of their students and to ensure their students achieve academic success. Increasing the percentage of first-year students that are retained to the second year is one way higher education institutions can demonstrate they are meeting these goals. There are many factors that could impact student retention rates such as race, gender, socioeconomic status, and academic preparedness. Another area that is facing growing concern is the relationship that faculty type may have on student retention. This study used quantitative statistical analyses to profile first-year students enrolled within three academic colleges at a large four-year public, research university. Descriptive statistics, percentages, point-biserial correlation and logistic regression were used to examine the relationship between faculty type and first-to-second year student retention rates. Results of the research found that many complex relationships exist between student characteristics, type of faculty, and first-year student retention. Significant relationships were found between student retention rates and type of faculty teaching first-year students, however, faculty type is not a strong predictor of student retention. Advisors/Committee Members: Harrison, Laura (Committee Chair).
