The group has written a report outlining 17 ways community colleges could increase their graduation rates. League President Scott Lay says the goal is to make community college more structured.
"Having mandatory orientation sessions, mandatory assessments and guidance of students. These are some of the practice changes that in many colleges it's already happening, our goal is to bring it to scale throughout the entire system."
Lay says right now, many students drop out because they lack adequate guidelines. He hopes the changes will help close the achievement gap that is still common at community colleges.
