Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) positively impacted the quality of the educational experience for first-year students following the development and implementation of University College. Background of the Problem Administrators at VCU identified the university’s biggest strength, program and student diversity, as having created its biggest challenges. The University College Plan (Virginia Commonwealth University, 2006a) states that three of the biggest challenges the University faced were that, More than one in five VCU students does not persist beyond his or her first year; one in four VCU students ends his or her freshman year on academic probation; and three in five VCU undergraduates do not earn a degree within six years (p.1). Students at VCU were not persisting to graduation at the level that university leaders wanted. According to the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (RT01: Retention Report (First-time, Full-time Students)), the first to second year student persistence rate for individuals who began at VCU in 1998 was 73.8%, in 2001 was 78.3%, and in 2003 it was 79.1%.

In addition, starting programs to provide funds for students to start their own jobs with low interest to improve their standards of

The Report refers to the Agenda for Children Services (2007) which stresses the importance of good outcomes for the children . The report quotes Canavan (2010) who argues that planned outcomes are ‘the best possible conditions, situations and circumstances for children to live their lives to their full potential’. As practitioners, I believe that we must continue to strive and commit ourselves to this most worthy of outcomes. It can only be achieved through partnership between children, families, professionals and the community (Principle
Introduction The purpose of this paper is to assess the performance of first-generation college students. With the number of first-generation college students enrolling in universities rising, these students often have a struggle to transition into a university life with the lack of knowledge that their parents could not provide for them. College is a huge step for many families because they are sending their children off to get a higher education; therefore, support and motivation were added to the studies. These two components will be mentioned in this essay because many studies have shown that they can affect a student’s ability to do well in school.

If I am selected to this group, I would contribute to the continued growth and success of the National Honor Society by setting high standards in my grades and achievements.

In Source C it states, “Among millennials ages 25 to 32, median annual earnings for full-time working college-degree holders are $17,500 greater than for those with high school diplomas only. That gap steadily widened for each successive generation in the latter half of the 20th century.”. This shows that people who went to college and got an education earn a lot more money than those who only have a high school diploma. When people are focused on their education and go to college they will be more successful, but focusing on college as a “country club” won’t get people successful. Continuously, in Source D it states, “High school graduates earn about 62% of what those with four-year degrees earn, according to a Pew Research Center study.

As I role model and leader for the children in my setting I demonstrate a positive attitude and behavior towards all the children in my setting.
