OVAE Releases a Series of Community College Reports

By: Chris

The Office of Vocational and Adult that come as a follow-up to the Regional Community that come as a follow-up to the Regional Community College Summits and Virtual Symposium held by the U.S. Department of Education. We wanted to make you aware of these reports as they provide some helpful information.

Scaling the Summits is a summary of the four Regional Community College Summits convened last winter and spring at community colleges across the country. The Regional Summits brought together over 800 attendees from 45 states. The reports provide useful insights and ideas from those attending the summits, and discuss transition and transfer practices, business and industry involvement, developmental education, college affordability, and serving veterans and their families. The strength of these reports comes in the form of practitioner driven recommendations.

A second series of reports come out of the Community College Virtual Symposium, held last April. The Symposium was a forum for discussing the perspectives of researchers who prepared draft issue briefs on strategies to increase student retention and college completion. These reports reflect the refinement and revision to the drafts that resulted from discussion with community college stakeholders. Topics include college-and-career-readiness, integrating secondary and postsecondary programs, developmental education, and industry driven competencies. The usefulness of these reports comes from the helpful feedback of those practitioners in the community college field.

The Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE) also plans to host a series of webinars in the upcoming months to highlight each report in greater detail.
