But as we celebrate our increasing diversity we forget three important things

But steadily up.as we celebrate our “increasing diversity,” we forget three important things.


We forget, first of all, that though college-going up for minorities, gains among whites have been greater


All groups up in college going from 1980 2006 but gaps also increase
All Groups Up In College-Going from minorities, gains among whites have been greater1980-2006, But Gaps Also Increase

We forget, second, that results are what matters. And once again, while everybody is going up, gaps are widening.


Gaps widen completion of ba or higher for all groups age 25 to 29 1980 to 2007

Getting traction on this problem requires new roles for systems
Getting Traction on This Problem Requires New Roles for Systems

  • Confront and change attitudes that gaps are inevitable, and colleges powerless to influence;

  • Set goals, monitor leading indicators and hold campus leaders accountable for results.

Top gainer and gap closer georgia state university
Top Gainer and Gap Closer: have closed gaps entirelyGeorgia State University

  • Downtown Atlanta with about 19,000 undergrads

  • 1/3 Minority, Mostly African American

  • Enrollment has grown more diverse in recent years

Adapted from Top Gainers: Some Public Four Year Colleges and Universities Make Big Improvements in Minority Graduation Rates, and Top Gap Closers: Some Public Four Year Colleges and Universities Have Made Good Progress in Closing Graduation-Rate Gaps, January 2010

Note: URM stands for underrepresented minority students and includes African American,

Hispanic and Native American Students. Non-underrepresented minority students include white and Asian students.

Keys to Georgia State’s Success: have closed gaps entirelyFocusing first and foremost on the data

  • Identified potholes on path to bachelor’s degree such as high intro course failure rates

  • Program evaluation data pinpointed strategies most effective for minority students

  • First year learning communities were instrumental in lifting overall retention rates, but even more so for minority students

Florida state care initiative
Florida State CARE Initiative have closed gaps entirely

  • Many black students come from local school districts;

  • Care program works with them in high school;

  • Admission standards relaxed, but summer transition program required;

  • ONGOING SUPPORT, MONITORING ON CAMPUS;

  • Example: special sections of freshman math courses, smaller and meet every day.


Results
Results? have closed gaps entirely

  • CARE students entering SAT: 940(average success nationally: 56%)

  • Non-CARE students entering SAT: 1204 (average success nationally: 73%)

  • But at Florida State, CARE students persist to second year at higher rate than non CARE students; and,

  • CARE students graduate at exactly same rate.


The goal of Access to Success is NOT to replicate programs and initiatives, but to spread the focused, goal-orientation of the high gainers and to share some of the strategies they use to stay on track.
