ARL Success amid Demographic Shifts

For the past decade, Georgia State University (GSU) has been at the leading edge of demographic shifts in the southeast. While doubling the numbers of non-white and low-income students it enrolls, Georgia State has raised graduation rates by 22 percentage points and closed all achievement gaps based on race, ethnicity, and income level. GSU now awards more bachelor’s degrees to African Americans than any other college or university in the nation. Through a discussion of innovations ranging from chatbots and predictive analytics to meta-majors and completion grants, the session will cover lessons learned from Georgia State’s transformation and outline several practical and low-cost steps that campuses can take to improve outcomes for underserved students.
