FOR RELEASE: Thursday, Sept. 23           

Project Supports National Goal of Making U.S. First Again in College Completion

[Note to Editors: Quotes from key national policymakers are provided at the end of this release]

WASHINGTON, D.C., Sept. 23, 2010-The National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) and Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) unveiled a new website (http://www.buildingblocks2020.org/) today designed to highlight and support efforts by nonprofit private colleges and universities to increase the number of at-risk students they enroll, and to boost the retention and graduation rates of various student populations.

The website is the central component of Building Blocks to 2020, a national initiative organized by NAICU and CIC to help the nation meet President Obama's call to make the United States first in college completion by 2020. 

The website provides opportunities for campus professionals working on the front lines of student access, retention, and completion to learn from the experiences of other colleges, and to mine for practices and policies that fit their individual institutional missions and student populations. The website will also serve as an information resource for consumers and policymakers who are interested in what colleges are doing to not only reach out to students from diverse backgrounds, but boost their chances of earning a degree.  The number and diversity of institutions and programs represented on the website will grow, as NAICU continues to gather and post material from colleges and universities.

At the moment, the Building Blocks to 2020 website provides summaries of 535 existing or proposed programs at 250 nonprofit private colleges and universities.  Summaries of programs can be browsed alphabetically by institution, and by state, and are searchable by 34 topics

Up until about 10 years ago, the U.S. led the world in college completion.  However, as the percentage of young adults with degrees has surged in other developed nations, the U.S. now ranks 12th in the percentage of adults 25 to 34 with an associate's degree or higher, according to the College Board

"Nonprofit private colleges are committed to doing their part to make the U.S. first in the world in college completion again, and are redoubling their efforts to increase the number of graduates from all backgrounds," said NAICU President David L. Warren. "Given the productivity of the nonprofit private sector in graduating students - we enroll 19 percent of all students, but award 26 percent of all degrees - our institutions will be a crucial part of helping the nation reach the 2020 goal."

"For any group of students you want to follow-top students in high school, first-generation, low-income, high-income, or minority-nonprofit independent colleges have the best record of graduating students in timely fashion, thereby helping to fulfill President Obama's goal that many more Americans will have high-quality college degrees," said CIC President Richard Ekman.

In the next year, NAICU and CIC will ask all private colleges to report on their progress toward meeting self-identified goals in producing more college graduates; increasing graduation and/or retention rates; increasing success with at-risk students, and/or increasing graduates in areas of national need.  The two associations will issue a milestone report summarizing the sector's progress.  NAICU and CIC will release additional milestone reports periodically.

Quotes from Key National Policymakers

Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA)
Chairman - Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee

"President Obama has made graduating more Americans from college a national priority, and I applaud NAICU and CIC for their work to make the United States first in the world in college completion by 2020. As we reach toward the president's goal, I will continue to take every step possible to ensure that a college education and the greater skills, higher salary and better employment opportunities that it brings remains within reach of every American student."

.............................................................................................

Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY)
Ranking Member - Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee

"In a rapidly changing global economy, access to a college education is simply not enough. Increasing the competitiveness and prosperity of our workforce requires that our students complete their course of study and cross the finish line to success."

.............................................................................................

Congressman George Miller (D-CA)
Chairman - House of Representatives Education and Labor Committee

"Especially in this economy, it is clear students need all the resources we can give them to ensure they can complete college and graduate with the skills to compete in a global economy. These types of programs rightfully identify students' needs and supports them at every step along their path toward graduation. I applaud NAICU's efforts to help college students succeed while in school and after graduation."

.............................................................................................

Congressman John Kline (R-MN)
Ranking Member - House of Representatives Education and Labor Committee

"To keep America competitive, students from all backgrounds need the tools and support to succeed in postsecondary education. I applaud school-based initiatives to promote success among vulnerable populations, including those spearheaded by independent colleges and universities. Institutions of higher education know the students they serve, and they are well equipped to customize programs and services to help their students thrive."

NAICU and Council of Independent Colleges
Launch Major College Access, Success Initiative

WASHINGTON, D.C., Feb. 12 - The National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) and the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) have announced a new effort, Building Blocks to 2020, that will highlight and support the efforts of private colleges and universities to raise college enrollment and graduation rates. The project was unveiled to the NAICU membership during its annual meeting in Washington, D.C.

Building Blocks to 2020 has two primary objectives. First, it gathers and communicates information on the considerable efforts in place or being planned by private colleges and universities to expand college-going, to increase graduation rates in areas of national need, and to enroll and support at-risk students, giving them the tools and skills they need to succeed in college. Second, the project disseminates successful practices so that private institutions can redouble their efforts to further increase college access and success.

"Our institutions want to be on record as endorsing and contributing to President Obama's 2020 goals," said NAICU president David L. Warren. "If you want to move the needle on college retention and completion, the wholehearted participation of America's private colleges and universities is essential."

Across all colleges and universities, only 24 percent of first-generation students succeed in earning a bachelor's degree, compared with 68 percent of students with parents holding a bachelor's degree. At private colleges, the completion rate for first-generation students is 61 percent.

"President Obama's intent to increase the college-going and college graduation rate is a worthy goal," said CIC president Richard Ekman. "Statistics already document the success of independent colleges and universities in retention and graduation. Our institutions will now build on that existing record as partners in reaching the President's goal."

A number of specific activities are already in place and others planned as Building Blocks to 2020 gets underway:

  • Survey of Effective Access/Success Programs Already in Place: An extensive array of programs for college access and success are already in place at private colleges nationally. However, there is no easy and comprehensive way to share information on these programs. Since late 2009, NAICU has been conducting an ongoing survey to identify innovative and successful efforts as a resource to other institutions.
  • Expanding Proven Programs: CIC has already secured more than $5 million in grants from the Walmart Foundation for 50 institutions to expand exemplary success programs for first-generation college students. For its part, NAICU will continue to advocate for a federally-funded competition open to all colleges, under the administration's proposed student loan reform bill, to expand successful initiatives.
  • Marking Progress: All private colleges will be encouraged to participate in the national effort by identifying goals appropriate to their missions. Institutions' progress toward those goals will then be periodically summarized in milepost reports that will look at success in producing more college graduates; increasing graduation or retention rates; increasing success with at-risk students, and/or increasing graduates in areas of national need.
  • Sharing Access/Success Programs: The milepost reports, as well as examples of particularly noteworthy existing initiatives, will be shared via a Building Blocks to 2020 Web site and through use of social media, such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and blogs. Included will be interactive tools allowing mentors from institutions with established programs to guide others in developing their own success programs.

The on-line survey gathering access/success activities from participating colleges will remain open indefinitely. Examples and reports will be posted at www.naicu.edu/2020.

Sister Kathleen Ross Selected to Receive 2010 Paley Award for Service to Independent Higher Education

Sister Kathleen Ross Selected to Receive 2010 Paley Award for Servi...

February 02, 2010

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Sister Kathleen Ross, founding president of Heritage University, has been selected by the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) to receive the 2010 Henry Paley Memorial Award.  She will receive the award from NAICU President David L. Warren on Tuesday, Feb.2, at the NAICU annual meeting.  The meeting will be held at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill.
 
Since 1985, the Paley Award has recognized an individual who, throughout his or her career, has unfailingly served the students and faculty of independent higher education.  The recipient of this award has set an example for all who would seek to advance educational opportunity in the United States.  The Paley Award is named for Henry Paley, president of the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities of New York from 1975 until 1984.
 
Heritage University was created in 1981, by two Yakama women who persuaded Ross to join them as founding president. Since then, Heritage has grown and succeeded in its mission "to provide quality, accessible higher education to multicultural populations which have been educationally isolated." Located on the Yakama reservation, the university's home town of Toppenish is abundant in those who traditionally would find it difficult or impossible to earn a college degree - immigrants, Native Americans, first generation college students and students from low-income families.
 
“Within the realm of independent higher education, Sister Kathleen stands as a true pioneer,” said NAICU President David L. Warren.  “The association is privileged to award her the 24th annual Henry Paley Award in recognition of her exemplary service to underserved students, and her leadership in inspiring others to reach out to the forgotten,”
 
Last March, Ross announced that she would begin the transition to new leadership for Heritage. Upon retiring from the Heritage presidency at the end of the academic year, she will head a new national institute based at the university, and dedicated to improving the success of first-generation college students.
 
NAICU serves as the unified national voice of independent higher education.  With nearly 1,000 member institutions and associations nationwide, NAICU reflects the diversity of private, nonprofit higher education in the United States.  NAICU members enroll nine out of every 10 students attending private institutions.  They include traditional liberal arts colleges, major research universities, church- and faith-related institutions, historically black colleges, Hispanic-serving institutions, single-sex colleges, art institutions, two-year colleges, and schools of law, medicine, engineering, business, and other professions.
