THE Campus: What has the pandemic done to the war on attrition?
4 March 2021
Student success is everyone’s concern on university campuses yet attrition rates can be stubbornly difficult to manage.

Join a panel of experts from Australia and the UK to discuss how Covid-19 has influenced dropout rates and how universities should approach attrition in light of dire economic and job market forecasts post-pandemic, as well as long-term plans for hybrid models of learning.
