Last week, Dr. Tim Renick, Georgia State University Vice Provost and Vice President of Enrollment Management and Student Success, testified before the U.S. Senate HELP committee, sharing about the success of Georgia State University in its work to eliminate race and income as a predictors of student outcomes.

During his testimony, Renick shared about the work being done by the University Innovation Alliance to accelerate the pace of change in American higher education. He shared about how campuses from across the Alliance are scaling up predictive analytics and sharing their innovations with each other to achieve broad results at scale. By generating real results at scale, collaboratives like the UIA play an important role in the transformation of higher education in the United States.

“Collaboration across institutions is perhaps the most promising path to transforming student outcomes at scale,” said Dr. Renick, who made a case for increased government investment in support of cooperative efforts that produce tested innovation with the potential to increase retention and graduation rates nationwide.
