Helping Students Achieve College Success with Intensive Test Prep

For years, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock struggled to retain and graduate minority students, particularly African-American and Hispanic students. Graduation rates hovered around 5% for males and 10% for females. The campus had become a revolving door for these students. “I became very concerned about what I saw happening to our minority students. I could not sit in good conscience and allow that to continue to happen,” said Dr. Donaldson.
