    Report on Impact of COVID-19 on Entering Students in Community Colleges

    With survey findings collected from entering students across 38 colleges during the fall of 2020, The Impact of COVID-19 on Entering Students in Community Colleges illustrates that while most surveyed students’ plans about the college they attended and their chosen pathway of study did not change as a result of the pandemic, COVID-19 did create challenges for the most vulnerable students.

    Report on Entering Students Who Work

    With survey findings collected from entering students across 74 colleges, The Intersection of Work and Learning: Findings From Entering Students in Community Colleges illustrates that when faculty and staff talk with entering students about their work and help them find balance between their working lives and their academic lives, they are helping those students onto a path of being more successful.

    Playbook and Web Toolkit on Guided Pathways: Ensure Students Are Learning

    The importance of bringing all faculty along on the guided pathways journey is illustrated in the Teaching and Learning Within a Guided Pathways Framework playbook, containing survey results collected from over 7,000 community college faculty members across the country.

    The accompanying web toolkit includes a searchable database of video clips and narrative descriptions of teaching practices related to the implementation of guided pathways. The toolkit also contains a faculty focus group discussion guide, equity tools, professional development tools, and tools that colleges can use with their Center survey data to assess how their students are experiencing various components of guided pathways.

    CCCSE Executive Director Linda García and Office of Community College Research and Leadership (OCCRL) Director Eboni Zamani-Gallaher hosted a webinar on November 11 that highlighted the Equity Tools from the web toolkit.
