Strategic Goals for Student Success
New Jersey’s community college trustees and presidents joined forces throughout 2010 and into 2011 to identify the best and boldest ideas to improve student success – especially associate degree and certificate completion. Now known as Strategic Goals for Student Success (formerly the Big Ideas Project), over 150 campus leaders spent 18 months engaged in numerous work groups, each co-chaired by community college presidents. These work groups conducted research and made recommendations in the following eight areas: Transforming Developmental Education; Aligning Expectations Between K-12 and Community Colleges; Creating Student Success Data; Promoting Adjunct Faculty Development; Expanding Joint Purchasing Practices; Building Academic Consortia; Building Alternate Learning Delivery Systems; and Using Core Student Learning Outcomes and Common Assessment Tools.
