College & Career Pathways

Shifting the focus from completion to skills development

College and career readiness are integral to our project. We believe that working more broadly to intertwine these objectives with college preparation and success will help retain students in the pipeline.

Using IU’s rich and extensive data about students’ experiences at our campuses across the state, as well as external data sources whose potential is as yet untapped, we can work with K–12 partners to look back at secondary experiences that have supported success and use them to craft strategies for success for secondary schools and students. Our college readiness and career readiness objectives mesh neatly with the goals and programs of the Indiana Department of Education.
