The four-year graduation rate at Eastern Kentucky University continues its steady rise, and has now more than doubled in an eight-year span.
By 2020, the University of Kentucky aims to aggressively increase its six-year graduation rate to 70 percent — an increase of nearly 10 percent over recent figures. At the same time, the university wants to significantly close the achievement gap — retention and graduation rates — that exists between the general student population and students of color, first-generation students and students eligible for Pell grants.
Kentucky's 86-percent graduation rate in the 2012-13 school year is fourth highest in the United States, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.
