In 2015, The Lumina Foundation awarded AACRAO and NASPA: Association of Student Affairs Professionals $1.7 million to pilot a project to develop models for a more comprehensive student record.
After the success of the pilot, Lumina awarded the two associations a $1.2 million grant in 2017 to continue their work on the development and adoption of a single Comprehensive Learner Records (CLR) in American higher education.
The CLR seek to capture, record, and communicate learning when and where it happens in a student’s higher education experience. This includes learning outcomes from courses, program and degrees, as well as experience they have outside
the classroom that help develop their career ready skills and abilities.
