Summer Academe Volume 9 contains two articles on summer start programs, as well as a conference presentation (University of California- Santa Barbara and University of Connecticut, respectively). The Journal of Higher Education has recently published an article: Wathington, H. & Pretlow, J. & Barnett, E. "A Good Start?: The Impact of Texas’ Developmental Summer Bridge Program on Student Success." The Journal of Higher Education 87.2 (2016): 150-177. Project MUSE. Web. 27 Jun. 2016. http://muse.jhu.edu/article/609045 . The authors studied 8 institutions and followed students over the course of two years.
Is it possible for NAASS member institutions with Summer Bridge Programs to share their internal information on the success of these programs in terms of student retention and completion?
