Initiative on Student Success

The Center uses two approaches to better understand students' college experiences: the surveys, which provide detailed quantitative data, and the Initiative on Student Success, which provides qualitative data.

student The Initiative conducts focus groups and interviews at select colleges, gathering the perspectives of students, faculty, student services professionals, and administrators to paint a more complete picture of the student experience.

The surveys' rich data help colleges better understand what is happening. Data from the focus groups and interviews can help them begin to figure out why.

Students Speak: Are We Listening?

New community college students talk about the challenges they face when starting college and what steps colleges can take to help them succeed.
