  • Council gets grant to support developmental education redesign

    The Council on Postsecondary Education and the state’s public colleges and universities will get some help in redesigning developmental education for students, thanks to a $326,000 grant awarded to the Council by Louisville’s James Graham Brown Foundation.
    Known as “corequisite” models of developmental education, the redesign will allow developmental education students to enroll directly into courses that count toward graduation requirements, provided they receive additional academic supports, such as tutoring, mentoring or supplemental instruction.
