Accelerating student success in the California Community Colleges.
In 2012, student success became the Foundation's flagship fundraising effort. The Foundation’s involvement with student success began with an educational policy grant from Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors’ California Education Policy Fund, established in 2011 with a leadership gift from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, to support the project “Accelerating Student Success in the California Community Colleges.” This project was part of the Foundation’s efforts to champion and support the California Community Colleges Student Success Initiative—a widespread effort to promote student success in the Community College system.
During this time, we also worked with the Chancellor’s Office on two important projects: the statewide Step:Forward priority registration awareness campaign, which increases student awareness of priority actions required to succeed in college, and the Success Center for California Community Colleges, which acts as a hub of support for statewide student success projects.
Today, Student Success continues to be a key focus for the Foundation, and plays a part in many of our programs, projects, and initiatives.
