Retention and attainment remains a key issue across higher education with all HE institutions undertaking specific targeted activity to address the challenges of student data, student engagement and student support to improve retention and attainment across all student groups. This symposium will consider these three areas that are key to institutional efforts to better enable student success particularly focusing on critical questions for all institutions including but not limited to:
• Improving the purpose and use of student data, are we collecting the right data? What data is missing?
• What do we mean by student engagement? How do we use student engagement to inform teaching practice?
• How do we best integrate student support services and teaching practice? How do we balance mainstream support with targeted support?
