Retention and Completion Rates in the Community Colleges
The Board of Higher Education established the Task Force on Retention and Completion Rates to:
- Develop an understanding of the issues that impact certificate and degree completion for students at community colleges; and
- Make recommendations to the Board of Higher Education on steps that can be implemented to support students enrolled at Massachusetts public two-year colleges to graduate in a timely manner or successfully transfer to a four-year institution.
The report (.PDF) of the Task Force was released in February 2007.
