College Readiness

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) at IUPUC along with Indiana State University and Purdue University Calumet, was awarded grant funds to ensure greater clarity in the expectation for college readiness and success as well as to lead and promote a greater alignment between K-12 and higher education. This initiative is funded by Lumina Foundation. The Center of Excellence in Leadership of Learning (CELL) is the project management organization in partnership with the Indiana Commission for Higher Education (ICHE).

Partners in the Postsecondary Regional College Readiness Partnership include:

The partnership is comprised of K-12 and postsecondary practitioners and administrators and will support better curricullum alignment across educational levels.

Our Process 

By bringing prominent college instructors from IUPUC and Ivy Tech together with leading area high school teachers in the math and English language arts (ELA) departments, we aim to improve student readiness and success for college and beyond. These working groups have identified the most critical academic concepts students need to be college ready. Further, they have outlined the skills, attitudes, and habits that predict college readiness. The rubrics are valuable tools for parents, students, educators and guidance counselors focused on helping high school graduates prepare for college success.
