The College is committed to increasing graduation rates of our students and to help accomplish this goal, a team of advisors focus exclusively on this effort. Operation Graduation works with a specific group of first time, full-time cohort students with the goal of on-time degree and certificate completion. Students are targeted by cohort year and the members of Operation Graduation utilize proactive advising strategies to help them graduate on-time. Advisors monitor academic performance with semester progress notes through graduation, encourage timely registration of required courses, and assist with possible completion scholarships.

Project Achievement is the institution’s initiative dedicated to increasing the graduation rates of African American males. Using similar proactive advising strategies as Operation Graduation, advisors work one-on-one with students to promote on-time degree and certificate completion. Project Achievement includes a social programming component known as the Black Male Achievers program at Union County College. Various social engagement events are held on and off campus related to personal and professional development for Black men to foster a culture of student success.
