COLRS pursues grants and partnerships to further learning, research, and service in online education.

WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies (WCET)

By unifying student data from six U.S. institutions and systems, the Predictive Analytics Reporting (PAR) Framework will demonstrate the effective use of predictive analytic methods for improving student outcomes. The goal is to identify variables that influence student retention and progression, and guide decision-making that improves postsecondary student completion. UIS is one of the six institutions selected to participate in the grant work.
