What our clients say about us
- I have worked directly with Professor Dietsche in a variety of capacities since joining the Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation in February 2004. In 2005, the Foundation launched a demonstration project at the University of Toronto, Mississauga campus to improve the persistence rates of students who entered the university with an entrance academic average in the bottom three quartiles. In setting up the project’s three-member advisory committee, the Foundation and the University of Toronto both nominated Professor Dietsche as the independent member of this committee. Professor Dietsche’s wealth of knowledge on the factors contributing to persistence rates, his scientific rigour and his ability to work with others were important considerations in nominating him to this position. Professor Dietsche showed determination and interest in shaping that project’s research agenda so that students would benefit and policy-makers would learn about the effectiveness and the efficiency of different retention strategies.Yves Y.
