The University of Texas at Austin has a goal:
to graduate 70 percent of its students within four years by 2017.
This is an ambitious goal, and we're dedicated to reaching it.
Below are six strategic areas we're working on.
Messages From the Champion
Rich students usually graduate from college. Poor students usually don’t. — That’s the theory The New York Times Magazine put forward in a recent article that highlighted my efforts at the University of Texas at Austin to improve graduation rates among economically disadvantaged students by addressing the psychological obstacles they face.
What the article did not address directly is the underlying reason why many students don’t graduate: the grading curve — the venerable measure that instructors use to separate the best students from the worst.
