DeVry Statement of Support for National Commission on Higher Education Attainment Open Letter to College and University Leaders
DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. --(Business Wire)--
DeVry applauds the recommendations of the National Commission on Higher
Education Attainment found in their Open Letter to College and
University Leaders: College Completion Must Be Our Priority. The
Commission states that in order to improve retention, institutional
leaders "must frequently and publicly underscore their personal
commitment to increasing the number of students who graduate." The
leaders of all colleges and universities in the DeVry family of
institutions make that commitment to student retention and graduation
DeVry institutions incorporate many of the strategic recommendations of
the Commission, including: creating a student-centric culture, improing
the academic experience, providing support services for nontraditional
students, "teaching the teachers," and using information technology to
identify at-risk students. We look forward to evaluating all the
Commission's recommendations and continuing to improve student outcomes.
- Daniel Hamburger, president and CEO, DeVry
