Will Improved Advisement Help Student Retention?

Attention: open in a new window. Print

 

Abstract:

The 1980's has been a period in which student enrollments have declined in colleges of agriculture. Student enrollment at Land Grant Universities declined 24 percent during the ten year period ending in 1988 (Manderscheid). Agricultural enrollment in non-land grant schools declined 13 percent. The largest declines occurred in such traditional fields of study as general agriculture, agricultural engineering, crop science, and animal science. Alternatively, colleges of agriculture that offered undergraduate degrees in physical and biological sciences realized significant increases in enrollment.
