APLU Launches Unprecedented Initiative Among Public Universities
November 26, 2018
On a Saturday earlier this month, the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU) brought together representatives from 130 institutions in the same room. Previously, they had worked together to group the universities into clusters of four to 12. These clusters will spend the next five years minimum working to increase access to college, boost retention, close the achievement gap, and ensure that more Americans are earning degrees. Known as the Powered by Publics: Scaling Student Success initiative, it marks an unprecedented collaboration among public American institutions.
