Promising and Practical Strategies to Increase Postsecondary Success RSS

In January 2012, the Secretary of Education invited submissions about promising and practical strategies, practices, programs, and activities that have improved rates of postsecondary success, transfer, and graduation. In September 2012, the Department of Education (ED) invited a second round of submissions, which added to this growing compendium of knowledge about promising practices. On this page, you can find the submissions from institutions and organizations that responded to both of these invitations. ED hopes that this information will be of interest to others in situations similar to those described in these submissions.

As noted in the Request for Information, ED will continue to review and post additional responses on a regular basis. Please refer back to this page for announcements of future submission deadlines. See the Federal Register notice for information on how to submit.
