The first-year seminar continues to be a common structure for supporting student success in higher education, yet it represents only one of many first-year programs.
With this in mind, the 2017 National Survey on The First-Year Experience marks a change from previous surveys administered by the National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition by exploring a broad range of initiatives designed to support success in the first college year.
Recognizing that individual first-year programs are connected to extensive bodies of literature and practice, authors representing diverse professional networks focused on college student success contribute their voices to the analyses and presentation of results. The report includes an overview of institutional attention to the first year and the prevalence of and connections between first-year programs, a review of the results relating to selected first-year programs, and implications for practice and future research.
