As part of ongoing efforts to ensure the university is providing world-class student experiences, Illinois launched the Student Success Initiative.
The university-wide initiative aims to better understand the factors that lead to undergraduate student success, which include retention, graduation rates, placement, degree-completion time, and other outcomes and experiences.
This initiative is also a critical step in ensuring the university is providing the best academic experiences for our students.
After gathering feedback from the campus community, Chancellor Robert J. Jones and Provost Andreas C. Cangellaris charged several committees to look at the predominant areas of interest that emerge. These committees are working to identify potential solutions and actions that can be taken by the university and submit reports to university leadership at the end of the academic year.
After the reports are submitted, the university will begin deciding what actions should be taken to ensure we are giving our students every opportunity to succeed. The initiative will also work to identify the student success work already being done to ensure a collaborative and thorough strategy is developed across the campus.
