Persistence and Completion


​​​​​​​​The value of a college education has never been higher. Not only is a college certificate or degree the surest way to greater employment outcomes, but college-educated individuals are more likely to live healthier lives, be civically engaged, and have greater overall life satisfaction than non-college-educated individuals. ACE is committed to promoting policies and practices that improve college completion rates. ACE’s research and insights on persistence and completion include a wide range of work identifying barriers to student success and offering informed recommendations on how higher education leaders can eliminate equity gaps and increase the number of students earning high-quality postsecondary credentials.​​
