CCEAL’s mission is to develop knowledge and advance promising practices that enhance success among historically underrepresented and underserved students in community colleges. We help community colleges surface and assess challenges to equity-centered institutional effectiveness, as well as develop problem-solving strategies and solutions.
CCEAL is not simply selling surveys. We offer a learning process. We are committed to assisting our campus partners in better understanding student challenges and applying findings to address those challenges.
We help campus partners to quantify equity deficiencies in accordance with their Student Equity Plans, identify potential remedies for those deficiencies, align remedies with relevant frameworks such as Guided Pathways, close opportunity and achievement gaps, inform professional development, and assess the accessibility, quality, and relevance of student services provided.
