November 6, 2019

EAB, which harnesses the collective power of more than 1,500 educational institutions to identify and apply proven practices that help education leaders achieve their goals, has named Grand View University as the winner of its Student Success Collaborative - Collaborative Citizenship Award. EAB's Collaborative Citizenship Award recognizes an institution that selflessly shares their practices and approaches to student success and strives to help their peers succeed. 

This is the sixth year in a row that EAB has awarded standout achievements in student success. Awardees are chosen from among the colleges, universities, and individuals that use EAB’s student success management system. 

“The 2019 awardees, like their predecessors, excel in using technology to amplify the efforts of advisors, faculty, administrators, and students and work collaboratively across campus to help more students stay in school and graduate,” said Scott Schirmeier, Executive Vice President at EAB. “The winners exemplify what schools can achieve with a campus-wide approach to student success, strong leadership, and an unrelenting commitment to helping more students reach their potential.”
