The Completion Agenda: A Call to Action. Summary Report from the November 10-11, 2010, Meeting of the American Association of Community Colleges Commissions and Board of Directors
McPhail, Christine Johnson
American Association of Community Colleges (NJ1)
At its annual joint board and commission meeting (Washington, DC, November 10-11, 2010), American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) focused attention on college completion by presenting two panel discussions on the completion agenda, followed by breakout sessions in which participants were assigned to focus groups tasked with providing qualitative information about how to enhance and sustain college completion. It was felt that this approach would be an effective way to examine the problems community colleges were facing, in particular by identifying barriers to completion. Following the focus-group sessions, the proceedings were summarized by the recorders, and the key points from each session were later reported during the general session on November 11, 2010. Following the meeting, the recorders' notes were submitted to the meeting facilitator and author of this report for review and consolidation. This report summarizes the ideas that emerged from discussion of the four assigned topics.
