Your Role in Student Retention

Over the years I have heard some staff members say that they wished they could play a bigger role in RIT's retention efforts. I'm always surprised that many staff don't acknowledge the role they play everyday just by fulfilling their basic job responsibilities. Whether it's ensuring that a maintenance request is completed quickly and efficiently or offering a simple 'thank you' when a student is purchasing their lunch.
