Supporting academically at-risk students from their first day on campus at Arizona State University
How might we equip at-risk students for success?
Students are selected for ASU’s LEAD program using a composite of their high school GPA and SAT scores. The LEAD program focuses on equipping students for success at ASU and beyond through:
- Building critical reasoning and reading skills in relevant topic areas
- Accelerating students’ communication skills including presentation and engagement skills
- Developing personal management skills through rigorous expectations during integrated courses
- Integrating program into necessary classes that count toward degree requirements
Fall 2015 retention for Fall to Spring was 87.3% compared to 83.7% for non-LEAD.
