Models of Excellence: Building Bridges to SuccessDecember 9, 2016 | :
by Ray Bendici
Student success is inherently at the center of every institution’s mission, and this round of Models of Excellence showcases eight initiatives dedicated to supporting that goal, from before a student’s first class right through—and beyond—graduation.
Honorees include efforts aimed at improving academic performance as well as boosting life skills that transcend the classroom.
Two honorees feature bridge-type programs targeting students who either need academic help or are from socio-economically challenged backgrounds.
