The University of North Georgia (UNG) is one of the most recent University System of Georgia (USG) institutions to partner with the National Institute for Success (NISS) to close student achievement gaps and improve student enrollment, retention, and college completion. "We know that a UNG education can change the trajectory of students and their families," UNG president Michael P. Shannon said. "We are more committed than ever to ensuring students are able to complete their degrees and realize the profound impact this experience can have throughout their lives." The work with NISS helped fuel UNG's reimagining of its Division of Student Affairs into the Division of Student Engagement and Success, led by Alyson Paul, who serves as the division's vice president and chief student success officer. This division focuses on delivering four pillars of student success: academic achievement, sense of purpose, well-being, and belonging and engagement.
