Community College Research Center
The ARCC Network, which is led by CCRC, the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, and Wheelhouse, brings together community colleges and researchers to work on pandemic recovery. We launched a new website where you can find all ARCC Network projects, publications, blogs, and more!
In a review of impact and implementation studies from the past ten years, this CAPR report summarizes what is known about how innovations to developmental education can improve student outcomes, and it draws out five principles that are key for reform.

Accelerating Recovery in Community Colleges
CCRC co-leads a new research network to explore strategies community colleges can use to bring back students who left during the pandemic, support their learning, and ensure they can succeed in the rapidly evolving economy.
CCRC studies community colleges because they provide critical access to postsecondary education and are uniquely positioned to promote equity and social mobility in the United States. Our mission is to conduct research that helps these institutions strengthen opportunities and improve outcomes for their students, particularly those from underserved populations.
