Thriving Institutions: New Lessons in Research and Practice
August 24, 2017
How are you at spotting trends?
Over the years at Credo, we've partnered with over 300 institutions of higher learning, and have noticed some striking similarities among colleges and universities that are high functioning and successful. From how they adapt their spaces and places on campus to accommodate all their students; to intentional programs they incorporate both within and outside the curriculum that foster success, retention, and climbing graduation rates; to innovation across all levels of leadership, we've compiled some detailed research about what makes thriving institutions, well, thrive.
From this research, we have built case studies featuring three of our partner institutions who have each taken on innovation in higher education in their own unique way.
Find out how Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, South Dakota, Maryville University in St. Louis, Missouri, and Cedar Crest College in Allentown, Pennsylvania, have distinguished themselves from the competition, and put sustainable, intentional practices into play as they recruit, retain, and best serve their students.
