Student Success

Two students in graduation caps and gowns, standing on the west terrace of the Old Capitol Museum, their shadows cast on the wall behind them.

Student success is a key part of the mission of the Public Policy Center. Research clearly shows that college students who have learning experiences outside the classroom – like doing research, working a job, participating in student orgs, or doing service-learning work – do better in school (higher GPA’s), are more likely to graduate, and are more successful later in their careers.
