To register for the one-hour webinar, which starts at 10 a.m. Pacific/11 a.m. Mountain/12 p.m. Central/1 p.m. Eastern/2 p.m. Atlantic/2:30 p.m. Newfoundland and Labrador, please click here and provide your name, e-mail address and the name of your institution or company.

    As IR magicians, we transform 7 years of admission data into insights on student academic success, which includes retention (year 1 to year 2) and graduation (six year). We use magical tricks (Tableau, SAS and statistical models) to explore how factors (gender, financial aid, legal status, admission group, admission average, degree type and co-op status) are associated with retention and graduation. Our project is important because it contributes to student success research in Canadian higher education and will inform our institution’s academic policies and student success and interventions such as the newly launched ‘Get Finished Scholarship’.

    Ukraine International Airlines flight 752

    CIRPA-ACPRI extends our deepest condolences to all members of our post-secondary community who are mourning the loss of students and colleagues who were aboard Ukraine International Airlines flight 752. Nothing can replace this tragic loss, and we ask all our members to support one another during this difficult time.
