Taking Action on Student Equity

21 Strategies to Advance Underserved and Nontraditional Student Success

Key Insights

The number of historically underserved and nontraditional students continues to grow in the two-year sector. Additionally, community college students are increasingly enrolled part-time, juggling classes with work and family commitments. These populations now comprise the majority of today’s community college students, yet their completion rates continue to lag behind those of the traditional student.

The changing circumstances of today’s students coupled with outdated institutional practices result in persistent success barriers that often widen achievement gaps. With this growing sense of urgency comes heightened pressure for community college leaders to confront the challenges that delay underserved and nontraditional student success.

This action plan examines strategies for community college leaders to tackle these challenges and promote equitable opportunities. Get started by downloading the resource or navigating to a specific guiding question.
