Facilitating Student Success for Entering California Community College Students: How One Institution Can Make an Impact.
Tovar, Esau; Simon, Merril A.
As the need to serve a broader and larger population of students at the community college level increases, the rate of student success is decreasing at many institutions. There is a greater need to deliver in-class and co-curricular experiences that satisfy the students currently entering college. The Student Success Project at Santa Monica College (California) accomplished the integration of such services. Entering freshmen students were provided an extended orientation, developmental and "intrusive" advisement, extra- and co-curricular experiences, peer support and tutoring, faculty training in pedagogy, and collaboration between instructional and counseling faculty. The interventions resulted in significant differences in grade point average, retention, persistence, and overall success rate. These interventions are readily applicable to other community colleges.
