Funded Projects Spotlight


First in the World

  • $3.2 million from the US Department of Education’s FIPSE First in the World program designed to spur the development of innovations that improve educational outcomes and make college more affordable for students and families. KSU’s program, led by Jennifer Wade-Berg, Assistant Professor of Human Services and Campus Executive Director of the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance, aims to increase institutional transfer rates by 25% and shorten time to degree attainment for underrepresented (in terms of race and ethnicity) and low-income students who transfer to KSU from two-year colleges. KSU will develop an integrated service delivery model with Enrollment Services Specialists, Transfer Graduation Coaches, Peer Mentors, and Transfer Learning Community and Peer Transfer Advisors working with the target group of 4,000 students over the four-year grant period.
