Missouri Completion Academy
The Missouri Department of Higher Education has teamed up with Complete College America to help Missouri colleges and universities improve their college completion rates. The program focuses on remediation, gateway course success, retention, course completion, time to degree and other metrics to find the best leverage points to increase completion. Nine higher education institutions developed implementation plans during the 2013 Missouri Completion Academy. The 2014 academy provided an opportunity for those teams to share their progress and the lessons they have learned. Complete College America advisors were again on hand to answer questions and discuss ideas to help the participating institutions develop additional strategies to increase completion on their campuses.
