Georgia Perimeter part of project to improve student success

Georgia Perimeter College is among a dozen institutions selected to participate in a national program to increase student success in community college.

The Association of American Colleges and Universities chose GPC for a new program -- called Roadmap Project -- to design stronger support programs so students will be more likely to graduate.

The idea is to provide students with tips, encouragement and academic help as soon as they begin college and at several stops along the way. Students will "become active partners in their own quest for educational success," according to a news release from the association.

Gainesville State College will also participate in the program.
