University Recognized for Improving Graduation Rates

The University of Minnesota has been chosen as one of two finalists for the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities’ first-ever “Most Visible Progress National Degree Completion Trailblazer Award.” The APLU designed this award to recognize universities that are, through conscientious attention and concerted educational efforts, successfully retaining and graduating students. APLU wants to promote the efforts of these schools as models for other institutions to follow.
