Details have been announced regarding a major cross-institutional collaborative project aimed to boost college student success rates. Named Powered by Publics: Scaling Student Success, the project features 130 universities that will work together in 16 clusters to increase student access and completion rates and close equity gaps. Efforts are being led by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities, which has asked participating universities for a five-year commitment to help graduate several hundred thousand college students during that span. The project will rely on data sharing among the universities, especially within the clusters where institutions will use standard metrics on student completion, retention and credit accumulation.
