Adelphi a Top 25 Gainer in Hispanic Student Grad Rates

Newsletter


 

According to “Advancing to Completion”—a report released last September by The Education Trust—Adelphi is a “Top 25 gainer in Hispanic student graduation rates among private institutions.” The report—subtitled “Increasing degree attainment by improving graduation rates and closing gaps for Hispanic students”—indicated that Adelphi and the other 24 top private institutions made the strongest gains in improving their outcomes for Latino students and closing the graduationrate gap between Hispanic and white students from 2004 to 2010.

In a statement responding to the EdTrust recognition, Adelphi University said that the Washington, D.C.-based organization’s “spotlight on our students’ accomplishments affirms our efforts and demonstrates that our focus on student success is reaping rewards for students and their families. This is especially important progress because we have seen our Hispanic undergraduate enrollment increase by 53 percent from Fall 2010 to Fall 2012. We will sustain our commitment to ensuring these new students, along with all our undergraduates, persevere through graduation.”
