Subject: student success
Date: 2008-06-09

Writing in Insider Higher Ed, Vincent Tinto argues for reshaping college experiences, especially in the first year, to deliver on the potential of greater access.  From his article:  "[In order to] address the needs of academically under-prepared students, a disproportionate number of whom are from underserved groups and from low-income backgrounds, we must stop tinkering at the margins of institutional life, stop our tendency to take an “add-on” approach to institutional innovation, and stop marginalizing our efforts and in turn our academically under-prepared students and take seriously the task of restructuring what we do."
