ELI Webinar | Accelerating Student Success through Collaboration and Scale

At a time when colleges and universities are under increasing pressure to improve college completion rates for students of all backgrounds, 11 public research universities have come together to share failures, lessons learned, data, and technology to close the achievement gap for low-income students. Two years after launching, the University Innovation Alliance (UIA) is beating its graduation goal and is on track to graduate nearly an additional 100,000 students (on top of existing numbers) over the next decade. During this session, learn more about the UIA's model of collaboration, including the importance of cross-functional teams, and how these institutions are crowdsourcing innovation and using data to identify and support at-risk students.
