PPO Effectiveness Team Earns Texas A&M #1 National Ranking
One of our major goals was reached in the tracking and consistent reporting of study abroad data per national standards, a project a group of us have been working on since 2001 and which Gracie Lara played a significant role since she joined the unit. Texas A&M reached the #1 ranking in the U.S. among public universities for students pursuing credit-bearing activities abroad in November 2016 (also among the top for non-credit bearing). That wouldn’t have been possible if we had not started regularizing the data to coincide with national standards about 5 years ago.
