There is a wealth of both anecdotal and sound research evidence which demonstrates a clear link between a student’s engagement with their learning community and their academic outcomes. Having a sense of connection and engagement with the institution, through their contact with lecturers, fellow students, other university staff, can make all the difference between persistence and academic success; and disillusionment, disappointment and abandonment of studies.
