Due to the success of the original pilot project for Stay the Course, CCFW is working with Catholic Charities of Fort Wayne- South Bend to replicate the Stay the Course project for IVY Tech students in Ft. Wayne, IN. LEO will evaluate the results to determine the impact in student persistence and completion. Originally piloted in Fort Worth, Texas, the Stay the Course program was designed to address the personal, non-academic, social, and institutional barriers to success for low-income students in college. After years of evaluation, LEO concluded that the results indicate that Stay the Course improves persistence in school and degree completion for low-income students.
