Programs to Improve the Retention and Success of Underserved Students at Colorado Public Institutions. Report to the Education Committees of the Colorado General Assembly in Response to HB 06-1024
Colorado Commission on Higher Education
The purpose of this report is to describe the programs and services designed to support underserved students at Colorado's public colleges and universities. This report was prepared in response to HB06-1024 Concerning Underserved Students at Institutions of Higher Education, which requires each governing board to prepare and submit a report regarding underserved students to include: (1) Programs and services that each state institution of higher education under the governing board's control provides to address the retention and success of underserved students; and (2) Additional programs or services for underserved students that the state institution of higher education would propose to provide and the related costs for the implementation of those proposed programs or services. The Department of Higher Education (DHE) collected information for this report from all public colleges and universities in the state. Although HB06-1024 requested a response by the state's public two and four-year institutions,; the DHE did not create and disperse a report template to the institutions for the collection and presentation of the data provided herein. Therefore, submissions from the state's institutions are variable: the data collected are not comparable. However, the narrative portions of the institutional level reports provide a full description of the services, programs and activities designed to serve underserved students, and the reports yield significant information concerning the institutional level programs and services designed to recruit, retain and graduate underserved populations. The reports do not contain or provide consistent definitions of or data for underserved students, including low-income and first generation students. Most of the institutions provided some institutional level data concerning overall enrollment numbers of racially diverse students; in most institutional reports this data is disaggregated by race category. Two appendixes include: (1) Campus Level Data, Four-Year Colleges and Universities; and (2) Campus Level Data, 2-Year Colleges. (Contains 61 tables.)
