Retention Coordinator
Lackawanna College recognizes that students drop out of school for many reasons but that often withdrawal is unnecessary if the proper support and/or assistance are available. The Retention Coordinator has the responsibility of providing services designed to address this situation and to insure completion of educational programs of study.  The Coordinator meets with faculty on a regular basis to identify performance or absentee problems and will stay in regular contact with students in jeopardy.
