Kristina PowersThe WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) is pleased to announce that Dr. Kristina Powers, associate vice president of institutional research services at Bridgepoint Education, has been selected as a Student Achievement Research Fellow at WSCUC.

As the WSCUC research fellow, Dr. Powers will work directly with WSCUC staff and member institutions to help further develop the Graduation Rate Dashboard (GRD) and utilize current data to better track student success and institutional effectiveness. This dashboard is a critical tool for institutions in the WSCUC region and it will also have an impact nationally. With Dr. Powers’ assistance, WSCUC will take a further step in building capacity in the region for increasing student success and achievement.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be working with WSCUC in this capacity, and most importantly, helping advance the conversation about how to measure student success,” said Dr. Powers. “With nearly 200 institutions in the WSCUC region, this is a significant opportunity to contribute to the national dialogue about student success.”

WSCUC is one of seven regional associations recognized by the U.S. Department of Education that accredits public and private schools, colleges, and universities in the United States.
