The mission of the Office of Retention is to retain students and increase the 4-year graduation rate by providing comprehensive academic and co-curricular support programs that empower students to succeed academically and personally.
The Office of Retention is supported by a 1.98 million dollar Title III Strengthening Institutions awarded by the Department of Education.
At Greensboro College, we know the journey to graduation can be a tough one. The Office of Retention is here to help students navigate their path and work through anything that stands in the way of their success. We recognize that each student faces unique challenges. Our mission is to guide all students from all backgrounds to achieve their full potential as graduates of Greensboro College.
Every student is different, and we love it that way. We celebrate their diverse identities, backgrounds, experiences, cultures, perspectives and abilities as strengths that enrich the Greensboro College community.
College is a time of transition. We empower students to face the challenges and take charge of their college experience—and whatever comes next.
The Office of Retention offers several resources and programs to support students throughout their college journey and empower them to succeed, including:
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
Greensboro College is rooted in the belief that everyone has a place in our campus community. Learn more about why and how we stand for diversity.
Global Communication Center (GCC)
Share your voice in an all-new way at the GCC, where students can find the tools and support to create any type of communication project they can dream up—from a paper to a presentation to a podcast.
Supplemental Instruction Program (SIP)/Math Support
For some of our most rigorous courses, students can receive additional support through peer-led teaching and learning groups, as well as supplemental one-on-one instruction from our professors.
We empower our students to become the best version of themselves. Your Path Forward is our 4 year common experience that helps students carve out their own road to a successful graduation—and receive support from several Greensboro College programs along the way. Here’s an idea of what that path might look like.
