Retention and Graduation Initiative (RGI)


Retention & Graduation Initiative (RGI) working groups were formed to address five focus areas identified at the spring 2017 Retention & Graduation Summit as key to further improving UIS undergraduate students’ retention and degree completion:

  • Finance
  • Curricular/scheduling
  • High-touch/wrap around services for students
  • Early intervention
  • Data analytics


Working groups met during spring 2017 to develop prioritized lists of viable initiatives and outline preliminary action plans for new strategies, pilots, and/or additional research or data-based options. The Provost’s Office is coordinating with working groups and project leads to finalize plans and implement selected pilots. View a list of selected pilot projects
