Student Support (Re)defined: What Students Say about the Support They Need to Succeed

The Research and Planning Group for California Community Colleges (RP Group) conducted Student Support (Re)defined between 2012 and 2014, asking nearly 900 students from 13 California community colleges what they think supports their educational success, paying special attention to what African Americans and Latinos cited as important to their achievement. The project’s director, Dr. Darla M. Cooper, will provide an overview of Student Support (Re)defined, highlighting the “six success factors” the RP Group identified through a review of relevant research on student success and support and which served as a framework for the study. After the presentation, there will be time for questions from the audience.
