Our vision is to the point: making sure students from all backgrounds succeed in reaching their goals and improving their families and communities, eliminating achievement gaps once and for all.
For the last three years, we’ve come together around bold goals to improve student outcomes, including closing achievement gaps, increasing degree and certificate attainment and transfers to four-year institutions, reducing excess unit accumulation by students, and securing gainful employment. Our efforts are guided by the core belief that colleges should simplify paths to educational goals and help students stay on those paths until completion. This Vision is our framework for making the Chancellor’s Office and the California Community Colleges as a whole truly student ready.
Strengthening The California Community Colleges to Meet California’s NeedsThe California Community Colleges has made significant strides in the last five years through sustained reform efforts in the areas of student success, transfer and career technical education. The colleges are now well-poised to build on this success and accelerate the pace of improvement.
