Scaling Community College Interventions. Cutting Edge Series. No. 2
Public Agenda
This is the second guide of the Cutting Edge Series and is designed to help colleges apply strategies that will allow successful institutional change and student achievement initiatives to reach more students. Section 1 of this guide lays out the most common obstacles to successful scaling and serves as a sobering reminder of the complexity of the scaling challenge. Section 2 offers a set of principles for colleges to follow in their institutional change and student success innovation processes that, when applied, will increase the chances of reaching scale. Section 3 provides two examples of scaling at Achieving the Dream colleges to illustrate the principles in action. The Critical Question Checklists presented in Section 4 are intended to serve as tools to prompt discussion of key factors that influence scaling at each stage in the Achieving the Dream 5-Step Process for Increasing Student Success through Institutional Change. By considering these questions, it is hoped that colleges may better anticipate and address the roadblocks to successful scaling. Appended are: (1) Applying SCALERS at the Community College; and (2) Resource List. (Contains 11 footnotes and 22 resources.)
