Title:Promoting a culture of student success: How colleges and universities are improving degree completion
Organization:Southern Regional Education Board
Short Description:Some colleges and universities are helping more students complete degrees while also providing a high-quality education. These institutions often serve a comparatively high percentage of students from low-income families and students with average-or-below scores on standardized achievement tests. Yet their six-year graduation rates are near the national average for all students. These colleges and universities are the focus of this report.
Annotation:Some colleges and universities are helping more students complete degrees while also providing a high-quality education. These institutions often serve a comparatively high percentage of students from low-income families and students with average-or-below scores on standardized achievement tests. Yet their six-year graduation rates are near the national average for all students. These colleges and universities are the focus of this report. The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) examined many strategies that public institutions are using to help more students earn bachelor’s degrees, with particular attention to students in regional colleges and universities who often face academic and/or economic disadvantages. The ?ndings of this report draw most heavily from interviews with college administrators, faculty, staff and students to identify institutional actions that contribute most to the colleges’ relatively high graduation rates. This report also re?ects current research on student retention and degree completion. Recent studies offer valuable insights into the factors that in?uence student success and how institutions are performing relative to the graduation rates of different groups of students.
