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 in Pedagogy and Cirriculum. 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, nearly 40 institutions, in particular their faculty, have worked in G2C to improve teaching and learning and reduce the unacceptable rates of DWFI grades in gateway courses.

A detailed description of the G2C process including evidence of strength, outcomes to date, and participating institutions is found here: Overview of G2C, Evidence of the Strength of the G2C Components & G2C Outcomes to Date 010217
