The Institute on High-Impact Practices and Student Success will help campus and state system teams advance student success by making quality and equity the foundations for excellence in undergraduate education. Teams will work with Institute faculty, comprised of nationally recognized scholars and practitioners, to articulate guided learning pathways that serve as catalysts to deepen connections between the assets students bring to college, their educational experiences, and preparation for lifelong success.

Drawing on evidence-based research that demonstrates a positive relationship between student participation in high-impact practices (HIPs) and improved student outcomes, teams will define and develop curricular and cocurricular practices to support student engagement, advance curricular coherence, and generate equitable outcomes.

Campuses will examine efforts to implement educational change and bring effective practices to scale in a time of limited resources. The Institute program addresses ambitious goals for improving both completion rates and the quality of student learning, and it is highly relevant for institutions at various stages of work.
