    WOW!!

    Is this data accurate? Is there a trace in place to determine whether or not an African American Student or majority student may have graduated from another institution after leaving the primary institution?

    I am appalled!! It looks like the graduation rate for our majority students is not that hot either! What can we do to increase retention among all students? I certainly hope that the answer will not be “creaming.” Taking the best of the best and not provide opportunities for the rest of our students. ~The TIP Lady

    To the TIP Lady (Jennifer? Keith here) Yes the numbers are at least directionally correct… I’m not in the middle of the data but have been working diligently for the past 10 years or so to get as many people as possible to understand the cliff to which we are collectively marching. The numbers are not that great for majority students and much worst for minority students who will become the majority in about 20 years or so.

    The answer to fixing this is simple in concept… but extremely difficult in implementation. A handfull of schools do it everyday. They do what other schools don’t … they take responsibility for the success of their students instead of leaving that element up to “someone else”. As a start, take a look at my blog at http://principiallc.com/principia-blog-site/. My wife, Dee, is working in the detail of the numbers and how they are affected by the approach (model) schools take. I’m working “in the spaces between” traditional approaches to see if we can’t shake up the leadership paradigm…as that is where real change has to happen. Thing is we can’t wait … this needs fixing NOW!

    4 year colleges will never again be affordable. Quit thinking the best road to success ,happiness, and good earnings can only be accomplished with a 4 year degree. Prepare for careers and majors where there are actually jobs when you finish. Look at OJT, apprenticeships,military, 1 year and 2 year programs. The debt load for many is near impossible to handle once they finish. One trillion dollars owing in college loans. AMEN

    I believe that these data are the standard set of Federally compiled 6 year graduation rates, for students who start at an institution and graduate from it. If my assumption here is correct (and maybe I missed it being defined somewhere in the article), the data do not account for transfers (transferring in to a school and transferring out of it). This is a gap in all the data, nationwide. Despite this gap, it’s clear that American higher education isn’t doing enough to provide improved learning and graduation rates. The answer is NOT to lower standards, but rather to seriously engage the underlying problems, which requires substantial reform of our colleges and universities. See Derek Bok’s OUR UNDERACHIEVING COLLEGES.

  5. Jason Lee

    I would like to know the source of the data. Regardless, I agree with Keith that the direction of the data is correct. A couple outcomes worthy of discussion at a State Level:

    – Michigan K-12 Schools are not preparing students adequately for post-secondary education. That preparation
    starts before High School.
    – Michigan Universities do not have adequate retention systems in place to support student retention on
    campuses (White and African American)
    – Something not discussed in this article, students who need the most help do not take advantage of retention
    programs at the university level.
    – The retention issue at Michigan Universities is especially true in technical fields. (STEM)

    Instead of looking at this as a negative, the identification of the problem brings forward the opportunity for improvement. If the State wants a workforce with higher skills and a college education investment in: K-12 educational programs, academic foundation and retention systems is critical. You are not going to be able to import enough international and out-of-state students to meet the demand for a future Michigan workforce. You have to work with young people we have here in this state and enable them to be successful.

    Just curious on how the graduation rate is calculated. Are you measuring the amount of freshman who graduate from that same institution? So, would a transfer student be counted again a univeristy’s graduation rate?

    If I started my education at one univeristy then transfer to another and graduated, would that reflect negatively on the first university’s graduation rate?

  7. Emily

    Just to be clear, is the focus only African American students in your study? Where are the rest of the racial-ethnic students? The effects of graduation rates happen with all racial-ethnic students across the universities and colleges. The information is very important from an administrators perspective working to improve retention and persistance, but in order to have progress we have to look at the big picture including representation from all racial-ethnic groups.
