Students whose families are more involved with academic support are more likely to persist. That's what the research shows. CampusESP sponsored an analysis of parent engagement and student retention at two CampusESP partner institutions, Abilene Christian University and Tarleton State University. The research was summarized by Kayla Reed, a PhD from Iowa State, who has also authored other related studies such as Helicopter Parenting and Emerging Adult Self-Efficacy: Implications for Mental and Physical Health (2016). Parent Engagement is Connected to Student Retention is a brief study that shows how higher levels of college parent engagement are related to higher percentages of student persistence and progress toward degree completion.
