Student Achievement Goals 

Winthrop's goals for student achievement are embedded in the University's goals, to promote access and degree attainment, and to continually enhance the quality of the Winthrop experience for all students  
     Goal 1: Support inclusive excellence by expanding our impact on students and our communities through enrollment growth and increases in retention and graduation rates.  

     This goal, pertaining to student achievement, is measured using data on enrollment, retention, and graduation rates. Aggregate graduation and retention data are presented in the tables below. Disaggregate data by gender, race and socio-economic status are located on the Student Consumer Information webpage.
