    ILEA Core Beliefs

Illinois Equity in Attainment Initiative (ILEA) member institutions subscribe to a core set of beliefs that are foundational to how we understand our role in addressing the college completion crisis on our campuses.

ILEA colleges & universities believe:

  • Colleges and universities are responsible for graduating all degree seeking students efficiently, and consistent with supporting students’ short and long-term goals
  • All students can graduate with the right information, tools, and supports
  • Racial and socioeconomic completion gaps are unacceptable and should be eliminated
  • Solutions and resources exist to close the equity gaps in higher education
  • The actions that colleges take or fail to take as it relates to student persistence and completion matters to students’ overall trajectory in college
