  • OverviewEssential learning outcomesWhy engagement matters Lessons from high-performing institutions

  • Advance Organizers To what extent do your students engage in productive learning activities, inside and outside the classroom? How do you know? What must you do differently -- or better -- to enhance student success?

  • Student Success in CollegeAcademic achievement, engagement in educationally purposeful activities, satisfaction, acquisition of desired knowledge, skills and competencies, persistence, attainment of educational objectives, and post-college performance

  • What Really Matters: Student EngagementBecause individual effort and involvement are the critical determinants of impact, institutions should focus on the ways they can shape their academic, interpersonal, and extracurricular offerings to encourage student engagement. Pascarella & Terenzini, How College Affects Students, 2005, p. 602
