• Description

This planning tool is designed to help community colleges facilitate productive conversations and develop comprehensive plans to significantly raise student completion rates.

This resource draws from Changing Course: A Guide to Increasing Student Completion in Community Colleges and serves as a companion to that guide.

While the guide introduces the key goals and principles of the Completion by Design initiative at WestEd, this companion planning tool provides:

  • A series of self-reflective questions to help community colleges examine their own areas of strength and their emphasis on increasing student academic success
  • Information about the range of practices that community colleges have used to improve student completion rates
