Georgia State University – Breaking down barriers to student success

When students enroll at Georgia State University (GSU), their ethnicity and income level are not predictors of whether they will graduate with a degree. For the past six years, African American, Latinx and Pell Grant students have graduated at or above the rate of the student body overall, and GSU has conferred more bachelor’s degrees to African American students than any other institution in the United States. So, what’s GSU doing differently? The answer lies in its sophisticated use of data and analytics.
