University Awarded Grant to Aid Student Success
UNC Charlotte’s retention rates for first-year students have steadily increased during the past five years, and now University leaders look to build upon that success through a special grant from EDUCAUSE.
The University is one of 24 recipients of a three-year, $225,000 Integrated Planning and Advising for Student Success (IPASS) grant funded by the Gates Foundation and the Helmsley Charitable Trust. EDUCAUSE is a nonprofit association comprised of IT leaders and professionals who are committed to advancing higher education.
According to EDUCAUSE, IPASS recipient institutions will research how to utilize current software and/or technology to improve educational planning, counseling and advising to promote an integrative approach to student success through "shared ownership for educational progress among students, faculty and staff."
