AMERICAN PUBLIC UNIVERSITY SYSTEM SELECTED TO PARTICIPATE IN PILOT OF GARDNER INSTITUTE’S GATEWAYS TO COMPLETION AND INAUGURAL OFFERING OF HIGHER LEARNING COMMISSION’S ACADEMY FOR STUDENT PERSISTENCE AND COMPLETION

American Public University System (APUS) today announced that it has been selected by the John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education to be one of 12 Founding Institutions for the pilot of the Institute’s Gateways to Completion™ (G2C™) process. The announcement follows the recent completion of its related self-study as part of the Institute’s Foundations of Excellence Program, in which APUS was the first fully-online university to participate.

Since 1999, the Gardner Institute has worked with hundreds of postsecondary institutions within the US as well as a select number of international institutions to improve undergraduate student learning, success, retention and completion rates. Gateways to Completion is a structured course transformation process that will allow APUS faculty and staff to analyze student and institutional performance in lower division gateway courses. The Institute developed the G2C process with extensive input from the 32-member G2C National Advisory Committee, including Dr. Karan Powell, APUS executive vice president and provost.

By participating in the G2C pilot, APUS has agreed to focus its analysis on at least five high-risk courses, which will be identified using evidence collected during the first year of the three-year G2C process. The analysis will inform the creation of evidenced-based course transformation plans that APUS will subsequently implement.

“Gateway courses enroll large numbers of undergraduate students,” said Gardner Institute Executive VP Drew Koch. “Research studies show that students who do not succeed in gateway courses are significantly less likely to complete their stated programs of study and they are also less likely to complete college degrees anywhere.”
