WHAT WE DO
A Strong Start
Improving Success through Gateway Course Design, Teaching, and Support
Gateway courses are central to a student’s academic trajectory. These introductory courses tend to have notably higher failure, withdrawal, and incomplete rates among first-generation, low-income, underrepresented, and adult learners – even when those students are performing well in their other courses.
The Collaborative is working with Kentucky’s institutions to improve outcomes by focusing on data-driven, evidence-based reforms and collaborating with specialists to improve gateway course completion.
