In May 2015, a cross college committee was appointed to examine the retention and graduation rates of Lesley University undergraduates. The process of examination has included empirical (observation, experience, evidence-based) and ontological (how do we know Lesley) practices which have included data analysis, observation, synthesis, social construction and organizational culture. This poster will demonstrate the cross-disciplinary approach of the committee.
