Every Red Wolf Counts

The Chancellor’s Commission on Completion is a 17-member task force designed to support A-State's commitment that Every Red Wolf Counts. The commission serves as the ongoing work group to ensure a steadfast commitment to the goal of graduating more students at Arkansas State.


Chancellor Damphousse has outlined our goals for student retention and persistence.

  • By fall 2020, retaining 85 percent of the fall 2019 freshman class (the Class of 2023)
  • By May 2023, graduation of 45 percent of the Class of 2023
  • By May 2025, graduation of 65 percent of the Class of 2023

To achieve these goals, we need the entire campus community - faculty, staff and members of our local community - to share our vision of student success.
