To determine which engagement factors contribute to student success at a large, public, research university in the southeast, the university library—along with representatives from Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, and other academic and support units across campus—have agreed to collaborate on the alignment and analysis of student data and to contribute their data to a repository that will enable longitudinal study. The study indicates that library, co-curricular, and extracurricular activities have a significant and positive impact on student success in terms of GPA and months to graduation. The model developed for this study is one that is easily transferable to other organizations.
