GOALS:

  1. To increase early outreach contacts made with targeted students (early outreach)
  2. To increase the number of admissions applications from targeted students (applications)
  3. To increase the number of targeted students accepted in to the University (acceptance)

  5. To increase the retention of targeted students (retention)

In efforts to meet our goals, this year we will be collaborating with the African American Recruitment and Retention committee and the Latino/a Outreach Coordinator to study public system of K-11 outreach actions, develop a survey of Early Outreach actions taken by each academic unit, study best practices models, study academic performance of targeted groups, study distribution of financial aid award, and monitor students retention rates by cohort.
