Student success is everyone's business!

Dr. Tinto has carried out research and has written extensively on higher education, particularly on student success and the impact of learning communities on student growth and attainment. His most recent book, Leaving College, 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 is judged.

Professor Tinto received his PhD in education and sociology from The University of Chicago. He is currently a Distinguished University Professor at Syracuse University. He has consulted widely with federal and state agencies, with independent research firms, foundations, and with two- and four-year institutions of higher education on a broad range of higher educational issues.

Following Dr. Tinto's visit he provided this list of  papers and conference speeches for those in the Grand Valley community with an interest in student persistence and success.
