Mainstay’s white paper explores how the meaning of student engagement has evolved over the decades, what it looks like today, and how institutions can use it to support student success.

This white paper also examines:

  • Which metrics are most important for defining and measuring student engagement at your institution 
  • How engagement can impact student success in higher education and beyond
