  4. 4. NATIONAL  CHALLENGE   Only  half  of  all  low-­‐income  high  school   graduates  immediately  enroll  in  college.   Even  those  who  make  it  to  their  first  day  of  college   are  unlikely  to  see  gradua?on  day.  Only  one  in  ten   low-­‐income,  first-­‐genera=on  students  who  enroll  in   college  earn  a  bachelor’s  degree.

SEED  CTS  –  FINDINGS   University   Gradua=on   Rate   Financial   Assistance/     Affordability   Campus-­‐Based   Support   Systems   College  performance  data  for  the  first  two  categories  are  readily   available.  The  quality  and  quan=ty  of  on-­‐campus  support  systems,   however,  have  remained  elusive  criteria  to  measure.   College  supports  directly  affect  graduates’  college  comple=on,   especially  for  the  neediest  students.  
  8. 8. SEED  INSTITUTIONAL  SUPPORTS  EVALUATION  (ISE)   The  Ins?tu?onal  Supports  Evalua?on  (ISE)  is  an   assessment  of  an  ins?tu?on’s  current  campus  based   supports  from  a  P-­‐16  perspec?ve  with  special  regard   to  serving  historically  underserved  students.   The  ISE  looks  at  the  following   supports…   •  Academic  Support   •  Disability  Support   •  Social  Engagement  /                                 Emo?onal  Support   •  Financial  Aid     …and  asks  these  key  ques=ons:   Are  the  supports…   q  Available?   q  Communicated?   q  Accessible?   q  Structured?
