Student Success Centers: Leading the Charge for Change at Community Colleges

At a Glance

Change magazine explored JFF's work to develop and support Student Success Centers in seven states, all with the goal of improving student success in community colleges.

Cranking up student success at community colleges requires many integrated changes at both the state and college level. To organize around a unified agenda and achieve that degree of change, seven states now each host an independent Student Success Center that provides a vision, a venue, and practical support for research, collaboration, policy, and programs. Change magazine highlights JFF’s work to develop and support Centers in Arkansas, Connecticut, California, Michigan, New Jersey, Ohio, and Texas.
