Why can't U grads finish on time?
Why can't U students finish on time?
U of M graduation rates are far lower than those of competing public universities.
The print version of the article (p. A10) has a table indicating that we are dead last among our self-selected - by the admin - peer group on both 4yr and 6 yr grad rate.
#1 Penn State 68/92 (students starting in 2004, 2002)
#3 Michigan 72/88
#4 Wisconsin 50/82
#5 Illinois 67/82
#10 Ohio State 49/73
#11 Minnesota 45/66
As the Daily put it:
"As for commitment to quality education at an affordable cost? Meaningless drivel. The administration has flatly failed on its promises of excellence and affordability." Daily (13 Oct 2009)
Time for a change?
