Student Success Innovations



Numerous approaches to improve student success have been implemented in Arkansas colleges and universities, some which have produced tremendous improvement in student completion rates. Among these efforts are fast track remediation, college coaches, student mentoring, academic alert systems, and others. Through this consortium, we hope to identify highly successful programs that can be replicated at other institutions.

Master Plan Goals Relevant to Student Success Innovations:

GOAL 1: Raise completion and graduation rates for colleges and universities by 10%.
