Teagle Foundation Approves $50,000 Grant to MICUA
The Maryland Independent College and University Association (MICUA) has been awarded a $50,000 initial grant by the Teagle Foundation to help more community college students in Maryland achieve their goal of earning a degree from a four-year college. Nationally, about 80% of community-college students want to earn a four-year degree, but fewer than 20% do so. MICUA and its member institutions will work with Maryland’s 16 community colleges to create a comprehensive transfer consortium and improve transfer pathways to colleges. The work of the consortium will focus on clear communication, shared data analysis, and a consistent focus on identifying and removing roadblocks to student success.
