The application period for APLU’s 2022 Degree Completion Award is now open! All APLU institutions are strongly encouraged to apply for the award after reviewing the application and guidelines. Applications are due by September 1, 2022 at 8PM ET and the winner will be announced during the APLU Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado on November 6-8, 2022.
APLU’s Degree Completion Award seeks to recognize and reward public universities that are increasing degree completion rates, and total numbers of undergraduate degrees awarded, while improving educational access, quality, and equity. The association hopes each member institution will consider applying for the 2022 Degree Completion Award so that APLU can honor your work and share it with other public universities as we collectively work to advance degree completion and academic success.
Up to five finalists for the award will be showcased at a prominent session during the APLU Annual Meeting at which a representative from each institution will present an overview of their work and discuss innovative degree completion practices.
