Who developed Ascend?

Ascend was developed through the Student Experience Project (SEP). SEP is a collaborative of colleges and technical assistance providers who are together committed to transforming the college student experience and creating equitable learning environments through innovative, evidence-based practices that increase degree attainment. 

Through the Learning for Equity Ascend Research Network (LEARN) we continued our development of resources and refined our guidance on how to support instructors to improve through facilitated Communities of Practice. We are also learning more about the pathways to institutionalizing Ascend at institutions of higher education.

Special thanks are due to the Raikes Foundation and the College Futures Foundation for funding support and to our colleagues at Equity Accelerator, especially Katie Boucher, Christine Logel, Mary Murphy, Krysti Ryan, Chris Smith, and Chaghig Walker
