University Innovation Alliance (UIA) is the leading consortium of
large public research universities working together to improve
outcomes for low-income students, students of color, and
first-generation college students. The UIA is designed, organized,
and led by our member institutions' presidents and chancellors.
Together, we draw from every region in the country and span the
spectrum of U.S. public research universities, from emergent
institutions to land grant universities and state flagships Since
its launch in 2014, the UIA has transformed a theoretical concept
for collaboration into a nationally recognized community of
practice that is driving both institutional transformation and
improved student outcomes. Our work is based on the simple
proposition that when universities share ideas, experiences, and
challenges, and work together, they can accelerate innovations that
help students graduate with a college degree. Today, our
institutions are on track to graduate an additional 136,000
students by 2025, and have increased the number of collective
annual degrees awarded to students from low-income backgrounds by
36 percent and 73 percent for students of color.
