The best-selling instructional and educational text centered on college student retention and graduation.

Real Outreach is about helping high school students, college students, and their families to understand the unique successes, challenges, and current needs of college students. This book is perfect for anyone interested learning more about college dropout prevention, mentoring, academic advising, academic success coaching, financial aid, campus resources, and more.


Each chapter has case examples of how Dr. McPherson has supported college students (e.g., African American, Asian, Latinx, White) from diverse backgrounds (e.g., first-generation, international, students with disabilities) by helping them to overcome obstacles (e.g., academic, financial, social, and life's issues) until they achieved their goals from freshman year through graduation.


She has also developed a college student retention and graduation model that she calls Real Outreach. This model encourages higher education professionals, institutional leaders, staff, and faculty members to rethink how they provide outreach so that students are fully supported when they endure challenges in college. By using the Real Outreach model outlined in the text, Dr. McPherson is confident that your institution can raise student retention and graduation rates
