We're now in range of Temple and Cincy. Within 5-7 years, especially with the drive for preeminence and the AAU, we're going to be very close to Tulsa (and dead-even with FSU).

I think student to faculty ratio is our biggest problem.

Hopefully, some of the additional $$$ from gaining preeminence can be used to better that ratio.

I'm just worried that the FL Legislature might attempt to move the goal posts again in 2018:

USF’s most recent data, updated after the summer 2017 semester, shows USF Tampa’s 6-year graduation rate has increased to a level (70 percent) that meets the preeminence standards according to the current Florida law. State universities must meet at least 11 of 12 established benchmarks, which are subject to change in the 2018 Florida legislative session. The Florida Board of Governors must certify all data before officially designating a university as preeminent.

We are pretty much tied with Cincy now, I think the ranking jumped from 133 to 140.

And our 6-year graduation rate is our 2nd biggest. We're making headway on the 6-yr rate, but you may be right about the extra funding helping with the ratio.

6 year rate is now 70%. That is exactly what was required to achieve preeminence.

Still needs to be higher for AAU inclusion; its a heavily favored metric. If our 6-yr rate keeps improving and we're able to bring down the student/teacher ration, we may see USF included in our lifetime.

These articles are one year old and we have since improved, but they provide some additional details.

USF graduation and retention rates garner national recognition

| 7/7/2016

TAMPA, Fla. - The University of South Florida ranks as the nation’s top performer in “Overall Student Success” among public research and doctoral universities in the 2016 Eduventures Student Success Ratings. A leading independent higher education research and advisory firm, Eduventures analyzed graduation and first-year retention data—two key indicators of student success—from 2004 to 2014 from more than 1,100 colleges and universities in the United States to develop the ranking.

“Over the last ten years, USF has significantly improved its six-year graduation rate from 47 to 67 percent and First Time in College student retention rates from 81 to 89 percent, a rate of growth that few institutions can match,” said Paul Dosal, vice president of Student Affairs and Student Success at USF. “These gains are the result of a thoughtful and deliberate culture change as the university transformed the way we approach the student experience and committed to improve graduation and first-year retention rates. We created a student success movement designed to embed the responsibility of our students’ success in every individual on campus.”

“As a result of these efforts, USF also has eliminated the achievement gap between racial and ethnic minorities,” added Dosal. “Black and Hispanic students graduate at rates equal or superior to the rates of white students. The same is true for limited income students.”

As part of the institutional focus on student success, USF has implemented numerous programs and initiatives in recent years, including: adding academic advisors with focused assistance to students who may be struggling; redesigned gateway courses; created a SMART Lab and increased library hours, expanded study spaces, writing and tutoring assistance and created Living and Learning Communities.

To build on its successes, last year USF began utilizing real-time predictive analytics to identify students who may need immediate support to stay on track and ensure timely graduation. With the help of sophisticated analytics that examines over 300 variables each week, a retention committee made up of staff from student involvement and engagement, first-year experience, residential life and education, financial aid, university data and research, and academic advising review potentially “at-risk” students offering the appropriate interventions needed to ensure timely degree completion.

“We are honored to be recognized as the top performer in overall student success by Eduventures. Ensuring that our students achieve timely degree completion and are well-prepared to successfully compete in a global environment remain central to our mission and vision at USF, and aligns with the goals established by the Florida Board of Governors,” said Ralph Wilcox, provost and executive vice president at USF. “While we have made incredible progress over the years, our pursuit of excellence continues.”

 

The University of South Floridais a high-impact, global research university dedicated to student success. USF is a Top 25 research university among public institutions nationwide in total research expenditures, according to the National Science Foundation. Serving over 48,000 students, the USF System has an annual budget of $1.6 billion and an annual economic impact of $4.4 billion. USF is a member of the American Athletic Conference.

Recently designated as an emerging preeminent research university by the Florida Board of Governors, USF has set a goal to achieve full preeminence in two years, opening the door to further national prominence and eventual eligibility for AAU membership. The Florida Preeminence program, written into state law three years ago, rewards high-performing state research institutions based on 12 metrics. Meeting nine of 12 preeminence benchmarks, USF is only two metrics away from full preeminence – which requires meeting 11 of 12 metrics.

Eduventures’ Student Success Ratings are Here!

By Kim Reid, Principal Analyst

 

...Additionally, we developed ratings within six broad categories of institutions based on a simplified Carnegie Classification and the control of the institution. Each institution receives a score from 1 to 100 in the four categories, which are equally weighted to derive an overall score. See our methodology to learn more about the regression and scoring model we used to develop the overall ratings.

Let’s take a look at some of those public institutions that are driving improvements.

University of South Florida-Main Campus 79 75 77 68 95
 
 
 
I found the AAU six year graduation rates for public universities, but it is from 2010.
 
Eleven AAU Public Universities are below the current USF six year graduation rate of 70%. So, we would rank 23 out of 34.
 
6-Year Graduation Rates AAU Public Universities
 
24 University of Missouri-Columbia 69.0%
25 Iowa State University 67.4%
26 University of Colorado at Boulder 66.5%
27 University of Iowa 66.0%
28 University of Oregon 65.9%
29 University of Minnesota-Twin Cities 65.7%
30 University of Nebraska-Lincoln 63.7%
31 University at Buffalo 62.0%
32 Stony Brook University 61.4%
33 University of Kansas 59.7%
34 University of Arizona 57.2%
