Info THIRD SEMESTER RETENTION RATE: Third semester retention rates measure the percentage of students who persist through their first two semesters, and enroll again for their third.
Info GRADUATION RATE: Graduation rates measure the percentage of students who apply for admission to UNM as a degree seeking student and who then graduate with a bachelor’s degree. Additionally, graduation rates may be reported as “Time to Graduation.” For instance, what percentage of students graduates with a bachelor’s degree within six years of their first semester? “Time to Graduation” numbers are most often reported for students who began at UNM as full-time first-time freshmen.
Info COURSE COMPLETION: “Course completion rates” measure the percentage of students who are still registered for the course at the end of the semester. “Successful course completion rates” measure the percentage of students who completed the course with passing grades. This is sometimes measured as “C” or higher, and sometimes as “D” or higher.
Info STEM GRADUATION: Stem graduation rates measure the percentage of students who were admitted to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) degree programs and who graduated with bachelor’s degree in these same programs.
Info LOW INCOME GRADUATION: Low-income student graduation rates measure the percentage of students from low-income households who were admitted to UNM as a degree seeking student and who then graduate with a bachelor’s degree. Low-income is most often defined as being eligible to receive a Pell Grant, or as having received a Pell Grant. This information is collected through student completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Other methods of determining low-income status may also be used.
Info RESEARCH: Research may come in two forms: participation in student research at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and participation in professional research by program faculty and staff. Quantifying impact on research is highly individualized for each program. For instance, one program may report the number of undergraduate students participating in research workshops, another may report the number of students participating in long-term research projects, and a third may report the number of research project completed by staff or faculty paid through the program.
Info NEW STUDENT ENROLLMENT: New student enrollment rates refer to the number of new students who enroll in higher education each semester or each year. Individual programs may impact this number by reaching out to the pre-college populations and recruiting these students to attend college. Some programs may opt to report only new-enrollment numbers at UNM, while others will report new-enrollment numbers at any higher education institution (for instance, community outreach programs that focus on students going to college, but not specific to UNM). New student enrollment does not refer to the number of new students served by individual programs each year.
Info NEW MEXICO ACHIEVEMENT GAPS: Numerous populations within New Mexico experience college entrance and graduation rates that are lower than desired. Among UNM’s mission is the desire to create an educational system that promotes equitable achievement for all students. For instance, college graduation rates for low-income students, rural students and students of color are often lower than those for white students or students from middle-class families. Quantifying impact on the achievement gaps in New Mexico is highly individualized for each program. For instance, one program may report the number of low-income students enrolled at UNM through their program, and another may report the number of Hispanic students who are supported by their program through graduation.
Info STUDENT LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT AND CAREER READINESS (SLDCR): SLDCR measures performance that is not easily quantified. It measures the impact on developing leaders, and on assisting students as they progress from college to the workforce in a way that allows them to achieve their life goals. Quantifying impact on SLDCR is highly individualized for each program. For instance, one program may report the number of students served who hold student leadership positions at UNM, and another may report the number of students served who find a job related to their degree within six months of graduation.
Info P-20 PIPELINE AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH: Many student services initiatives are focused on serving the community, or on preparing students to progress through the public school system and into higher education. These programs often serve individuals who will never register at UNM, but who are successful in their life goals nonetheless. Quantifying impact on this pipeline and community outreach is highly individualized for each program. For instance, one program may report the number of community members assisted with tax preparation, and another may report the number of student who transfer successfully from CNM to UNM.
