Georgia State University serves as an inspiring example of what students can achieve with the right tools and support at the right time. Once a segregated university, the school struggled for decades to overcome low graduation rates and high achievement gaps. Then, Georgia State University’s leaders decided to try something different and started meeting students where they were. Today, Georgia State University is among the most diverse universities in America, with no gaps in graduation rates—by race, ethnicity, or income.
