Teachers College, Columbia University

Completion by Design

May 2011–February 2016

This major Gates Foundation–funded community college reform initiative was designed to increase the proportion of low-income young adults who earn postsecondary credentials and shorten their time to completion. CCRC provided participating colleges and states with a framework for analyzing their data on student progression and success, conducting analyses of key issues and trends across colleges, and providing technical assistance to colleges on conducting loss–momentum point analyses and using the results to improve programs and services.

This project was funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
