UCR's Graduation Rate Initiative

Last June, EVC/P Dallas Rabenstein appointed a task force to look into the causes of UCR's comparatively low graduation rates and to make recommendations to increase the campus's 4 and 6-year graduation rates.  In January, the Graduation Rate Task Force submitted its final report.  The report has been endorsed by Chancellor Kim Wilcox, EVC/P Rabenstein, and the College deans.

In the coming months the campus will post an implementation plan and reports on the implementation of the recommendations of the Task Force.

The purpose of a university is to produce "more intelligent members of society" by fostering "cultivation of the mind."

John Henry Newman, *The Idea of a University*
