Harald Åge Sæthre is
Project Manager at the Section of Student and Academic Affairs,
Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of
Bergen, Norway. He works with different projects throughout
the curriculum, including recruiting campaigns, reception
of new students, carrier guidance/job fares and alumni initiatives.
His main goal is to recruit more and better students, and
to get highest possible retention. His background as a master
in ecology is transferred to a holistic view to attain a
best possible learning environment. Sæthre has worked
as a school teacher, but mainly as an academic adviser and
leader of the Section of Student and Academic Affairs. He
has especially looked to the Anglo-American world for experience
and has apart from international conferences also visited
universities in USA, UK and Australia. Works of Tinto, Pascarella,
Terenzini and Astin are the main inspiration. Especially
Tinto’s longitudinal model of institutional departure
is a basic instrument.
