Why Not Honors? Enhancing Retention through an Improved Understanding of Reasons Why Students Do Not Make the Climb

Saturday, November 8, 2014: 1:00 PM-1:50 PM
Governorís Square 16 (Sheraton)
This presentation features results of a survey and focus groups exploring reasons why qualified students were not completing the Honors curriculum at SDSU.  The "Theory of Planned Behavior" (Azjen, 1991) is used as a conceptual framework to explore these issues.  Findings and implications for honors student retention will be discussed.
