Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count
Lumina Foundation for Education launched this major new initiative to address a national imperative: increasing success for the growing number of students for whom community colleges are the point of entry into higher education, particularly low-income students and students of color. Durham Tech is one of 27 colleges nationally to receive grant funding of up to $450,000 over 5 years.
Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE)
CCSSE provides information on student engagement, a key indicator of learning. The survey is a versatile, research-based tool that asks questions about institutional practices and student behaviors that are correlated highly with student learning and student retention.
Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE)
The SENSE helps colleges discover why some intering students persist and succeed while others do not. It focuses on intake processes and early classroom experiences to see what is working and what needs improvement.
