for Transfer and College Completion

National Survey of Student Engagement The Center

For more than a decade, the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) and the Center for Community College Student Engagement (CCCSE) have collaborated in bringing a strong focus on educational quality, equity, and high-impact practices to higher education institutions and the national discourse. With support from The Kresge Foundation and Greater Texas Foundation, NSSE and CCCSE have joined with Excelencia in Education in a special project focused on helping institutions strengthen Latino student engagement, transfer, and college completion.

Twenty-four institutions from urban locations—that is, 12 pairs of community colleges and baccalaureate institutions—are participants. Among other commitments, selected institutional pairs will bring teams of five leaders from each institution to an intensive 2 1/2-day institute focused on strengthening the engagement, transfer, and college completion of their Latino students. The institutions are located in California, Florida, Michigan, and Texas. Substantial data work and discussion prior to the institute prepares the teams for development of a collaborative action plan to be implemented on their campuses.
