He is a noted theorist in the field of higher education, particularly concerning student retention and learning communities. For more than twenty years, Dr. Tinto’s pathbreaking book “Leaving College” has been recognized as the definitive resource on student retention in higher education. Now, with his brand new book, “Completing College”, Tinto offers a coherent framework with which to develop and implement programs to promote completion.
