This conference report provides a summary of the activities and outcomes of the second Student Success Strategies Conference, which sought to further facilitate the development of community college action plans in the areas of access, assessment, and intervention in ensuring student success. Following introductory information on the conference, an overview of activities and presentations is provided. Next, a summary is presented of the action plans of the participating institutions indicating that Oregon's and Washington's community colleges are making progress in the following areas: (1) encouraging more faculty involvement in assessment procedures; (2) creating more computer access to records; (3) exploring new strategies for intervention in the classroom; (4) conducting a values survey of staff; (5) evaluating academic standards policies, monitoring student progress, and developing better intervention plans; and (6) evaluating intervention processes. A directory of resources is provided next, indicating which schools are involved in various success strategies related to access (e.g., printed policy on access, comprehensive market research process, weekend classes, and follow-up activities for people who inquire about programs but do not enroll); assessment (e.g., self-assessment process, mandatory course placement, optional pre-enrollment counseling, and automated assessment); and intervention (e.g., preregistration support for new students, student survival classes, mentor programs, intercultural services, and placement services). Contact people for each college are listed. The results of a values survey of participants are appended. (UCM)
