The ECPI University Columbia SC Campus has joined The Graduation Imperative. Anchored around institutions of higher education, it’s a community-led initiative aimed at increasing the number of college graduates. By improving college retention, members will encourage economic growth and development in the region.
According to the Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce, educational attainment is one of the biggest predictors of success for cities and metro areas today. Simply put, the more educated a city’s population, the more robust its economy will be. What’s more, increasing the four-year college degree attainment rate in each of the country’s 51 largest metropolitan areas by 1 per cent would generate an increase in personal income of $124 billion per year for the nation.
“ECPI University provides a student-centered learning environment which promotes professional development and retention,” said ECPI University Columbia SC Campus President James Rund. “Because we work closely with our students, assessing their individual needs, we see ourselves as a natural partner for this important initiative.”
