U.W. Graduation Rate Improves
Laramie, Wy – A higher percentage of University of Wyoming students are graduating within six years compared to a decade ago. That's the findings of a report on higher education. But, U-W President Phil Dubois says the school still needs to do better at retaining students. He says it is their goal to have a graduation rate between 60 and 65% and right now it is around 52%.
Dubois says there was not a culture of getting students through to graduation at U-W. He says it has helped that the university now requires students to take more rigorous courses in high school and live in the dorms during their freshman year.
