University of Tennessee at Martin Chancellor Keith Carver is on a state team leading an effort to increase four-year college completion rates. 

According to a release, Carver participated in the national Complete College America Summer Action Summit this week along with 36 other states discussing related national and state policies.

Nonprofit education advocacy group Complete College America states 41% of full-time students at four-year flagship schools and 19% at non-flagship schools complete bachelor degree requirements in a four-year period. They say the number goes up to 75% within a six-year period.

UT Martin implemented in 2016 a four-year academic plan for undergraduates.
