Stop, Drop, Enroll!

We want students to succeed! We’re taking part in a first-of-its kind effort to help understand why some students leave college after their first year. “Stop Drop Enroll” is a study conducted in partnership with Hennepin Technical College, North Hennepin community College and The Brooklyn Bridge Alliance for Youth. The group conducted a comprehensive study to examine the reasons why students drop out and to propose action steps to increase support so that we help more students graduate with their degrees.  The research team included students and included the following questions:

  1. Who are the students who dropout or stop out?
  2. Why do they dropout or stop out? (personal, institutional, systemic)
  3. What supports or systems changes would prevent dropping out?
  4. What strengths do students have that help them – that we could help to foster among more students?


We’ll share results in the coming months. Stay tuned!
