As part of its ongoing efforts to increase degree completion, APLU recently announced finalists for its 2015 Project Degree Completion Award, which will be presented at the association’s annual meeting on November 15-17 in Indianapolis.  In this fourth installment of a five-part series, APLU spotlights Morgan State University, one of the five finalists for the award.  Morgan State University has made advances in student retention and degree completion.  Its Student, Technology, and Retention initiative uses technology to help faculty identify students struggling with coursework and direct students to academic advisors who are equipped to assist students in resolving the issue.  The university has raised its freshman retention rate to 76 percent in 2013 from 63 percent in 2006.
