[Chancellor’s Statewide Syllabus with logo]

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

The numbers are in! College Success Coaches are living up to their job titles and helping more students find academic success across VCCS campuses.

(http://www.vccs.edu/vccsblog_post/college-success-coach-initiative-opens-doors-and-helps-students-succeed/)

 

• College Success Coach Initiative (CSCI) students are retained from year-to-year at a rate that is 10% higher over their peers who do not receive these support services, increasing enrollments and
completions at participating colleges.
• Over the last five years, CSCI students earned credentials at twice the rate of their peers who did not participate in CSCI.

VCCS Dual Enrollment classes are helping some students jump straight from high school to the Ivy League, where they enter as third-year students, no less.

MECC is taking steps to keep the entrepreneurial spirit alive in a part of the state that’s still struggling to get its economic footing.
