Student Success

[Create] a climate of possibility. If you do that, people will rise to it and achieve things that you completely did not anticipate and couldn’t have expected.
- Sir Ken Robinson, Author and Innovation Consultant

Each year, California Community Colleges are a gateway to higher education for over 2 million students. These students arrive on our campuses with differing goals and levels of academic preparation. Our students are a multicultural and multigenerational mix, with many juggling personal, academic, and financial challenges. Several are first-generation college students who may never have stepped foot on a college campus, while others are returning from the workplace or the military to upgrade or learn new skills.

As California Community College instructors we seek to serve each of these students by delivering quality instruction in friendly and engaging learning environments. We want to help them succeed in our classes, on our campuses and beyond. The Student Success QTs offer powerful, positive, and purposeful activities to get students off to a great start and to keep them focused on their educational goals as we work to awaken the possibilities and promise in each one.
