The Wichita State University Open Pathway Quality Initiative reports to the Higher Learning Commission. 2013-2016.
Wichita State University’s Quality Initiative project was centered on its Graduation Partnership (GP), a strategy involving faculty, staff and students to improve overall student success. The Partnership aimed to enhance the student experience in all its forms by providing initiatives to improve academic performance, retention and graduation rates, and being satisfied with the WSU experience. The primary GP goals aimed at increasing the retention rate of IPEDS-based first- year, full‐time freshmen by 10% and increasing the six‐year graduation rate of IPEDS-based first‐time, full‐time freshmen by 10% (see dashboard for an overall summary of initiatives and results, page 10). A secondary goal was to develop metrics to measure graduation rates for transfer students and then increase those rates by 10%. Accomplishments and changes made to the initiative were continuously evaluated.
The Wichita State University Quality Initiative progress reports submitted to the Higher Learning Commission annually 2013-2015 and the final report submitted in 2016.
