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 to open access to more students and retain students in the pipeline.
Using IU’s rich and extensive student data at our campuses across the state, as well as external data sources whose potential is yet untapped, we are working with K–12 partners to examine secondary student experiences that have resulted in success and use them to craft strategies for success for other secondary schools and students. Our college ready and career ready objectives mesh neatly with the goals and programs of the Indiana Department of Education.
