Mission of the Graduation Initiative
For all students of our richly diverse campus community to make an informed choice of major, successfully complete degree requirements in a timely manner, and graduate prepared for careers in a changing multicultural world.
To reinforce quality education and promote academic success by understanding the issues that hinder retention and completion and addressing the findings with appropriate interventions, services, and practices.
- Advising: Making contact with students at the critical junctures in their education results in a more satisfying, more successful experience for students.
- Curriculum: Alignment of scheduling practices, program structures, and instructional support remove roadblocks in students' paths to degree.
- Engagement: A strong connection between students and the campus community expands support networks and prevents little setbacks from becoming career ending events.
