Changing Course: A Planning Tool to Increasing Student Completion in Community Colleges

By Andrea Venezia, Thad Nodine


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
