Date and Time: February 26, 2018 3:00–4:00 PM
Location: Washington, DC
Venue: 485 Russell Senate Office Building

Students are well aware of the benefits of higher education, yet too many students—particularly those who start off underprepared—struggle to complete their degrees. IES-funded research has shed tremendous light on both successful and unsuccessful practices to support students entering community college. Working collaboratively with policymakers and practitioners, research is helping to inform advances in developmental education at community colleges.
