Home REL West About REL West California Adult College Completion Partnership

California Adult College Completion Partnership

REL West is partnering with six higher education institutions within the northern region of California —Shasta College, Sierra College, College of the Siskiyous, the Yuba Community College District, California State University Chico, and California State University Sacramento—to advance their efforts to increase the number of individuals with “some college, no degree” or “near completers” who return to college and complete their credentials. Because this population is disproportionately composed of low-income, first-generation college students and people of color, improving degree completion can also help advance educational and workplace equity. Through coaching and applied research, REL West will support the partner institutions to identify and reengage adult learners, learn about evidence-based strategies, gather evidence about their progress, and identify ways to broaden the implementation of evidence-based adult reengagement and support strategies across the California State University and community college systems.

Current Projects

This coaching project uses a continuous improvement model to help each of the partnering higher education institutions review and update their baseline data on the characteristics of adult students who are near degree completers (that is, with some college but no degree); review the adult reengagement and support strategies; implement the strategies; measure progress; and identify successful student reengagement strategies that can be scaled across the California State University and community college education systems.

No completed projects at this time.
