The University Innovation Alliance - When Universities Collaborate - Students Win

April 30, 2018View for printing

The University Innovation Alliance is the leading national coalition of public research universities committed to increasing the number and diversity of college graduates in the United States.

We share a sense of urgency about this work because we are public universities with a public mission. Higher education needs to do a better job of graduating students across the socioeconomic spectrum, particularly low-income students, first-generation students, and students of color. Raising graduation rates is imperative for individual social mobility and U.S. global competitiveness.

For too long, colleges and universities wasted time and resources trying to solve this graduation challenge by themselves. It was inefficient and ineffective, and students paid the price. In 2014, we flipped the script. We decided to innovate together. We set ambitious goals, opened up our data, and agreed to share everything we learn.
