2014 Student Success Initiative Brochure -- Focused on Student Success
In January 2011, the California Community Colleges Board of Governors formed a task force to chart a roadmap for system-wide focus on student success. The task force identified best practices and designed evidence-based recommendations to ensure student success is a driving theme in our colleges. This comprehensive plan, known as the Student Success Initiative, focuses on our core missions of workforce preparation, remediation, transfer to four-year colleges and universities, and degree and certificate completion. The initiative is transforming our community colleges and helping more students from all backgrounds achieve their educational goals.
