Bridging the Gap between Community College and University: Learning from the ENLACE Experience
W. K. Kellogg Foundation
Nearly half of all American undergraduate students start their higher education at a community college. For the Latino population, that number jumps to over 60 percent. Many ENLACE sites realized that, to have an impact on the numbers of Latino students successfully attaining bachelor's degrees, they needed to bridge the transition between community college and university. The ENLACE model has made a difference in the lives of Latino students by using a holistic approach: implementing student-centered programs, engaging parents and the community, and changing institutional and state policies. These three core elements were also vital in bridging the gap between community college and university. This brochure presents good practices that emerged through the ENLACE experience, and are also borne out through research. (Contains 1 footnote.)
