Addressing equity gaps in postsecondary education will help more students thrive in college, complete their degrees, and find fulfilling careers. At Strada Education NetworkSM, we call that Completion With a Purpose®.That’s why we are excited to be a part of Committing to Equity and Inclusive Excellence: Campus-Based Strategies for Student Success — and the outcomes the project is yielding.
Since 2015 Strada Education has been proud to partner with the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) — in collaboration with the Center for Urban Education at the University of Southern California — on this important project. With additional assistance from Great Lakes Higher Education Corp. & Affiliates, a cohort of 13 diverse institutions has worked toward improving success for all students. They have placed special focus in their commitment to equity and excellence on low-income, first-generation, adult and minority students.
And Committing to Equity and Inclusive Excellence already is making an impact. The project is:
- Increasing student access to and participation in high-impact practices
- Narrowing achievement gap
- Engaging faculty in professional development on active learning strategies
- Infusing into curricula the 21st century skills that put students on a path to success in college and career
