About the Author:

Tiffany Beth Mfume is director, Office of Student Success and Retention, Morgan State University, Baltimore, Maryland.

Review:

Dr. Tiffany Mfume addresses many critical issues confronting HBCU retention and graduation. In addition to dispelling popular myths about African American students, this brilliant academic leader has amassed a significant collection of proven strategies and interventions that can positively increase HBCU graduation rates. HBCUs have a rich legacy of providing opportunities for African-Americans to obtain a college education and thereby make tremendous contributions to their families, communities, and the nation as a whole. Currently fewer than 10 of the 105 HBCUs graduate as many as 50% of their entering freshmen. This work will change that. It is must-read for those interested in the restoration of the prominent role of HBCUs in African American education. Bravo, Dr. Mfume, for a job well done! (John Hudgins, PhD, associate professor, Sociology and Human Services Administration, Coppin State University)

Dr. Mfume's book is a true treasure chest of wonderful ideas, innovative practices, and golden nuggets of critical pieces that are essential to transforming a campus to address and 'practice/live' student success. I am glad to see a practical book that shares lessons learned, discusses the benefits of leveraging technology in 'plain language,' and emphasizes the 'change management' aspect of the transformation that is required to impact graduation numbers. (Ana B. Borray, director iPASS Implementation Services, EDUCAUSE)

Dr. Mfume has masterfully articulated what can be done to help improve retention and graduation rates at HBCUs. But more importantly, she has captured how to develop and sustain a campus culture that facilitates student success. (Danette Gerald Howard, vice president for policy and mobilization, Lumina Foundation, former Secretary of the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC))

Dr. Tiffany Mfume is leading the way in advancing college access and success for underrepresented students. Her groundbreaking analysis will change the way we look at college advising and institutional approaches to improving college retention, progression and completion. (Greg Ratliff, senior program officer, education, postsecondary success, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation)
