About

The Journal of Student Success and Retention (JoSSR), the official publication of the Tennessee Association for Student Success and Retention (TASSR), provides a forum for the scholarly study, discussion, dissemination, and evaluation of policies, programs, and practices that influence post-secondary student academic success and retention.

An online, peer-reviewed, open-access journal, JoSSR reflects the mission of TASSR to reach out to academic staff, administrators, and faculty working with diverse populations of students on college campuses. This publication is a vehicle for information and idea sharing to support and coordinate the collective effort to improve student success. Topic areas include, but are not limited to, the following:

Retention initiatives, learning support and/or developmental education, academic advising, effective teaching practices/techniques and curricula, student support services, special student populations, distance/online learning, student life, enrollment and administrative services, and current research/trends that advance the field of student success and retention.

JoSSR is published annually in the fall.
