This report describes findings from current literature that helped our understanding of the general background issues surrounding recruitment and retention as well as the various strategies employed to enhance both efforts. We present a model for R & R practice that contains three elements: Information, Preparation, and Support. Those elements and methods to serve them are elaborated through a series of tables. We supplemented the tabular information with five case examples. These cases show recruitment and retention from different vantage points.
