News: June 2016

June 9, 2016
Washington, D.C.—The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) and Coalition of Urban Serving Universities (USU) today released a report examining institutional innovations undertaken at seven public urban research universities aimed at improving student success, including graduation rates, among low-income and underrepresented college students. The universities participated in the first phase of an APLU and USU-led initiative called Collaborating for Change that is helping universities implement and scale a series of transformations to admit, retain, educate, and graduate more high-need, traditionally at-risk students while reducing costs, re-examining campus business models, and fostering mutually beneficial campus-community engagement.
