Gateways to Completion

Kennesaw State University is participating in the Gateways to Completion (G2C) initiative, partnering with the John Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education. G2C is a data-driven, institution-wide, three-year process focused on enhancing student success and learning in gateway courses. High-risk gateway courses at KSU are high-enrollment, lower division courses with DFWI rates of 20% or higher. G2C supports Complete College GA and the 2015-16 KSU Bridge Strategic Plan Goal 1 (Enhance learning and services that improve retention, progression, and graduation rates). The University of Georgia (USG) is the only university system participating in G2C and is one of over forty institutions internationally participating in the G2C initiative.

KSU’s participation in G2C began in 2016 with a focus on five courses in the Colleges of Business, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Science and Mathematics. The G2C Task Force and Steering Committees have worked together to develop a comprehensive plan to improve the student success rates in these courses.
