Since 2015, Driving Toward a Degree has helped institutions make informed decisions regarding their advising and student supports, with an eye towards boosting key student success metrics.

Furthermore, we identify the equitable policies and practices—defined as policies and practices designed to accommodate differences in the contexts of students’ learning—institutions are adopting to ensure all students, especially racially minoritized and poverty-affected students, are equipped with the resources to achieve their goals of academic enrichment, graduation, and gainful employment.
