Great Expectations: Implementing a 21st Century Student Success Agenda
Over time, the priority for community colleges has shifted from merely increasing institutional enrollment to ensuring student completion and success. Reclaiming the American Dream sets forth a bold agenda to redesign students’ educational experiences, reinvent institutional roles, and reset the system to guide this new strategic direction. It is imperative that the recommendations of the 21st-Century Commission on the Future of Community Colleges be implemented so that current and future generations inherit a vibrant economy, including a highly-skilled citizenry, and maintain global competitiveness. 

“Great Expectations: Implementing a 21st Century Student Success Agenda,” provides a venue for the American Association of Community Colleges and its member institutions to engage in purposeful dialogue around implementation of the 21st-Century Commission recommendations, and to share promising practices that colleges have developed and implemented to meet the needs of the 21st-century student and employer. Proposals focusing on the seven recommendations of the commission report, including leadership development to implement the recommendations, will receive the highest priority.
