Terence Kennedy joins TXWES as director of retention

04.25.2022 | By: Texas Wesleyan University

Texas Wesleyan has selected Terence Kennedy as the University's new director of retention.

In this newly-created position, Terence will work with departments across campus to coordinate initiatives with the goal of supporting student retention and persistence to graduation, while tracking data on the effectiveness of those initatives.

"Terence has a proven track record of working with students one-on-one to identify and meet their individual needs. That experience aligns perfectly with this role," said Alan Liebrecht, vice president of enrollment, marketing and communications. "We are excited to see Terence in action supporting our students toward their goal of earning a college degree."

Terence graduated from Texas Christian University in 2004 with a degree in psychology. He comes to Texas Wesleyan from his alma mater, where he spent nine years with its Center for Academic Services, working his way up from academic advisor to assistant director. Throughout his time there, Terence oversaw a mentoring program for new students who were struggling academically, coordinated staff and support for orientation advising and optimized services to students through new processes.

"It is an honor and a privilege to join the RAMily as our university's first director of student retention. The creation of this position speaks volumes about our shared commitment to the success of our students. I'm excited about this new role and the opportunities to collaborate on initatives that will support more Rams on their path to graduation," said Terence.
