In a report released this week by The Education Trust, Rising Tide: Do College Grad Rate Gains Benefit All Students?, East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania (ESU) was ranked sixth among the 255 institutions in exhibiting exceptional improvements in graduation rates and diminished gaps for underrepresented minority students (URMs).
The paper looked at six-year graduation rates from 2003-2013 among first-time, full-time students at four-year institutions to determine whether those institutions that have increased overall graduation rates also increased graduation rates for underrepresented students (Latino, African-American, and American Indian students) and reduced gaps between these students and their white peers.
