A Matter of Degrees: Promising Practices for Community College Student Success

What are the educational practices that may potentially have high impact on student progress Lobby Level and success in community colleges? To what extent are these practices currently being used in community colleges? Providing an early overview of the new 2012 National Report from the Center for Community College Student Engagement (CCCSE), this session will focus on those practices that research and institutional data indicate have a positive impact on student persistence and completion. Workshop participants will learn the results of the first national surveys of students, faculty and community colleges that show to what extent these promising practices are part of the experience of community college students. Participants will work in groups to complete a Promising Practices Inventory for their own institutions. They will identify next steps for promoting the use of these practices in their own institutions and will discuss the challenges involved in ensuring both quality of implementation and significant scale.
