Using four distinct sections, the authors describe the essential elements of a campus-wide retention program. The first two sections describe four critical areas that should be considered when thinking about retaining students of color, which include: academic preparation for college, graduation from high school, enrollment in college, and persistence to complete the degree. There is also an extensive explanation about why students leave college, including a discussion of the retention similarities and differences of white students and students of color. The third and fourth parts offer a framework for retention and suggest clear and practical ways of implementing a campus retention program.
