School-University Partnerships: A Model for Supporting Transition and Persistence from K-16Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching (2019)
The reasons why students persist in their post-secondary learning are complex. This paper proposes a model for the development of K-16 partnerships that promote student success through the transition from secondary school to post-secondary, supported by teachers, faculty members, and educational developers. This model proposes that each of the partners engage in developing sustainable, collaborative projects. These projects have at their core a focus on students’ transition from one educational institution to the next, with the intended outcome of increasing rates of persistence, while reducing rates of attrition. Not all students may have post-secondary education as their personal goal, but for those that do, this support model aims to provide a framework to scaffold the transition so that learners are successful, and teachers and faculty are prepared to support learners as they move from one institution to another.
