The Student Success Council was established to research, implement, and recommend strategies that will accelerate student success in order to reach the Master Plan goals. A wide range of expertise will be leveraged to implement at scale high-impact, student-centered practices focused on improving postsecondary access and completion.
Consistent with the Council framework introduced to the Board on January 6, 2020, the SSC is convened by Board staff on a regular basis and is charged to help identify trends, obstacles, and solutions that will inform policies and practices to achieve attainment goals. It will evaluate progress toward Master Plan objectives and provide guidance to accelerate attainment/completion. The stated objectives of the Council include identifying barriers to postsecondary credential completion, determining best practices for scale implementation, developing strategies to close equity gaps, and researching and recommending policy solutions to improve service to students.
