FIU President Mark Rosenberg will be in Washington, DC for the official launch of Collaborating for Change: Analyzing New Approaches for Student Success
on Thursday, March 31 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm at the National Press Club.
Hosted by the Association of Public & Land-grant Universities (APLU) and the Coalition of Urban Serving Universities (USU), this initiative, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, promotes and assists public urban research universities as they implement transformational approaches to advance student success. These efforts are particularly focused on helping high-need and traditionally at-risk students while keeping costs down, re-examining business models, and reaching deeper into local communities.
President Rosenberg, along with an FIU student and faculty member, will discuss far-reaching efforts that include a focus on gateway courses and deep roots into the Miami-Dade public schools that works to improve college readiness and student progression into and through the university.
