New student success and undergraduate leadership positions

June 7, 2016

Dear Colleagues,

Last November, President Michael Schill set an aggressive goal to increase four-year graduation rates by ten percentage points over the next five years. At the time of the announcement, we knew it would take dedication, additional staff, and financial resources to achieve this ambitious goal. We made an investment of $17 million over the next five years to support scholarships, advising, graduation assistance, and predictive analytics. Today, I’m pleased to share with you some personnel news tied to this initiative.
