NAICU Access and Success/Building Blocks to 2020 Survey
President Obama has set a goal for higher education that by 2020 America will have the world’s highest proportion of college graduates.
Independent colleges and universities have contributed to degree production at more successful rates than our public counterparts. However, policymakers are interested in the stories behind our graduation success, particularly with underserved populations, as well as how we are continually working to achieve even higher standards of student success going forward.
We want to learn more about current and planned efforts that not only increase the enrollment of underserved students, but also programs that graduate students with college degrees.
This survey attempts to gather information on access and success activities on your campus - both current and those under development. By compiling such information, NAICU plans to demonstrate to policy and public stakeholders that independent institutions have long been contributing to undergraduate degree attainment, continue to be leading innovators in student success program development and implementation, and can be seen as a critical sector and partner in reaching the 2020 goal. NAICU will spotlight unique and innovative work of institutions in this area.
This survey is an opportunity to publicize your institution’s efforts and ideas in access, persistence, retention, and completion. Please pass this survey to the individual who can best answer this survey, most likely your outreach/retention officer or your public relations officer.
