2012 Zane State - Leah Meyer Austin Award Brochure

Zane State College received the 2012 Leah Meyer Austin Institutional Student Success Award for closing the gap between developmental education students and college ready students, and improving the retention of drop-out prone students. Zane State College’s Achieving the Dream strategies have changed the college’s culture and raised the prospects of residents of Zanesville and the other low-income, rural Appalachian Ohio communities served by the college. In Fall 2011, 87% of the college’s 2,900 students received financial aid; 76% needed developmental courses.

The Austin Award recognizes the superb management of the college’s leadership team, as well as the college’s closing of gaps between underprepared and college-ready students, and its steady graduation rate amid exponential enrollment growth of high-need students.
