Abstract

Retaining students in their higher education studiesis a longstanding issue that has receivedincreased attention in more recent times. Theimpetus for the concern is the large-scale changesthat have occurred in higher education over thepast few decades and resulted in increased diversityin the cultural and educational backgrounds ofparticipating students. In earlier times when thestudent profile was more homogenous, academicsuccess and study completion were seen as theresponsibility of the students themselves. Currentlyin the context of diverse student cohorts,higher education institutions are seen to shareresponsibility with students for their studypersistence, academic success, and study completion.It is now appreciated that institutions need toprovide educational processes and programs thatare inclusive for all students. Inclusive approachesare premised on acknowledging the range of backgroundsand experiences of all students in processesand services such as institutional discourse,student services, and educational programs.Importantly, inclusive approaches mobilize therange of perspectives, experiences, and viewpointsof all students in the educational setting,laying the foundations for a rich educational experienceand academic success.
