A New Vision for Student Success

Ever thought success for students meant more than an A?

Each year since 2007, a team of researchers headed by Dr. Laurie Schreiner, Professor of Higher Education at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, CA, has administered the Thriving Quotient to large samples of college students across the United States in order to collect national information about student thriving.
“Thriving college students not only are academically successful, they also experience a sense of community and a level of psychological well-being that contributes to their persistence to graduation and allows them to gain maximum benefit from being in college.”
