“Students, faculty, and campus staff are still learning how to access and deliver the right combination of online and in-person support services that are critical to student success,” said Scott Schirmeier, EAB’s president of technology.
“The winners of EAB’s 2021 Student Success Collaborative Awards have gone above and beyond in their mission to keep students on track to graduate at a time when the pandemic has completely upended the traditional student support model,” Schirmeier added.
Said UWM Chancellor Mark Mone: “We’re grateful for this recognition of our collaborative efforts with UW-Parkside, Milwaukee Area Technical College and Carthage College to eliminate equity gaps in college completion. Our efforts have led to an uptick in success rates for underrepresented students, including graduation rates.
“With the pandemic, our students need help like we have never seen before,” Mone said. “We don’t want to see generational impacts for those who are struggling. We want them to become rising stars.”
