									         WHAT IS THE GATEWAY TO GRADUATION
                                      PROGRAM?

 The Gateway to Graduation Program is a faculty~led effort to improve student

 learning and retention in courses with high enrollments of first~year students. It

 represents a collaboration among academic departments across campus that offer

 Gateway courses and key support units including University College, the Office

of Information Management and Institutional Research, the Office of Student

Life and Diversity, the Diversity Inquiry Group, and the Office of Enrollment

Management. Led by the Gateway Advisory Board, the program includes

faculty development offerings, a series of Gateway W eb~seminars open to all

members of the campus community, monthly Gateway Course Coordinators

meetings where directors share Best Practices and make recommendations for

enhancing and revising courses and policies for the Gateway program.

WHAT IS THE GATEWAY GROUP?

The Gateway Group was founded by administrators, faculty, and students who

attended the American Association of Higher Education Summer Academy in

July   2000.   Designed to be a coordinating body that fosters the retention of first~

time, first~year students at IUPUI, this group facilitates communication among

those involved in Gateway courses, disseminates information on best practices

for promoting learning in Gateway courses, and seeks and distributes funding

for development of Gateway courses.
