This page links to a case study of Evergreen Valley College's student retention strategies. The college has implemented a few key methods to increase retention of both female and male automotive students, including: -Changing the culture in introductory courses from one where "weeding out" students was normal to a culture focused on "screening in" students.-Using "modeling" in the classroom -- instructors model or demonstrate the lab, lecture and then have students do hands-on activities. Many instructors skip the "demonstration" step.-A literacy course using automotive terminology was developed for students in the course of the Project; this had been planned prior to the CalWomenTech Project.These strategies may prove useful for other community college programs looking to increase retention rates and attract new students.
