NGLC Announces $1.5 Million in Follow-On Funding for Student Success Plan
EDUCAUSE - Our Primary Supporter, Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC), an initiative dedicated to improving college readiness and completion, today recognized the contributions of four of its original grantees for their work in demonstrating positive post secondary student outcomes. NGLC announced that Sinclair Community College will receive $1.5 million in follow-on funding to continue its work in leveraging technology to significantly improve student outcomes.
The recipients exceeded the high bar established for the follow-on awards in the following ways:
- They strongly demonstrated positive outcomes during the initial period of funding from April 2011 to July 2012, including providing convincing comparative data showing benefits to students who have used their innovations.
- They proved their capability to be readily adopted by other campuses.
- They have clearly demonstrated financial viability and sustainability within current institutional budgets, both for the original institution and for expansion campuses.
- They have served students effectively and have also brought positive changes to the systems, policies, and practices of post secondary education.
“The projects selected have cleared a high bar,” said Andrew Calkins, Deputy Director of NGLC. “Their influence will extend far beyond their own institutions and the students they are serving directly. They’re very much a part of the evolution of postsecondary education in this country towards personalized, digitally-supported learning.”
