Knowing that new students who are successfully integrated into college are much more likely to do well, St. Cloud State is participating in a national higher education project known as “Foundations of Excellence® in the First College Year.” The project is designed to help colleges and universities refine their approach to educating first-year students.
The Foundations of Excellence project has involved more than 300 two- and four-year colleges and universities across the country in developing the standards that constitute a model first year. St. Cloud State will conduct a campus-wide self-study of the university’s first-year programs in order to develop, by the end of the school year, a strategic action plan for achieving those standards.
