The dynamics of student retention are changing rapidly and outpacing college and university resources as institutions have become increasingly dependent upon enrolling students who may be unprepared academically, financially, and emotionally for higher education (Fowles, 2014; Selingo, 2013). Higher education institutions are realizing the responsibility to serve all students, and particularly those with varied levels of preparedness, so they are turning their attention to both cognitive and non-cognitive approaches to retain students. Traditional academic interventions, such as academic advising and tutoring services that target cognitive abilities, are being complemented with first-year programming, mental health counseling, and peer mentoring to enhance non-cognitive abilities, such as emotional intelligence (EI) (DeAngelo, 2014; Permzadian & Credé, 2016; Tinto, 2012; Whiteman, Barry, Mroczek, & MacDermid Wadsworth, 2013).
