John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education

What is Gateways to Completion (G2C)?

Designed to create and implement an evidence-based plan for improving teaching, learning and success in historically high-failure rate courses.

G2C-outcomes-webpage-adspaceSuccess in foundation level courses, such as: accounting, math, chemistry, biology and writing and rhetoric, is a direct predictor of retention. Gateways to Completion (G2C) will provide you and your institution with processes, guidance and tools to support redesign of lower division and/or developmental level courses.

Developed with insight of a distinguished national Advisory Committee, the comprehensive G2C approach provides you with a structured, evidence-based course self study process with unparalleled, advice and support from the nation’s leader in higher education student success.

It also includes a Teaching and Learning Academy and an Analytics Collaborative. You’ll also attend the Gateway Course Experience Conference and participate in the G2C Community of Practice meetings. There you will network with like-minded institutions and reflect on and shape the body of scholarship on gateway course success.

Since fall of 2013, 30 institutions are working to reduce the unacceptable rates of DWFI grades in gateway courses through G2C. View a list of our G2C Founding institutions.
