Moving Forward: Strengthening Your State's Capacity to Bring Innovation to Scale. Policy Bulletin
Clancy, M. Colleen
Jobs For the Future
Evidence-based innovations developed locally can have a powerful and broad impact on a state's student success agenda, but only when a system is in place for accelerating the diffusion of innovation across institutional lines. State leadership is key to bringing effective practices to scale. That is what is happening in North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia, which are using both existing and new resources to support and build on the efforts of their colleges. This brief describes how the three states have improved their capacity to accelerate change and pursue a student success agenda, presenting a systemic four-step process to assess the strengths of the existing state infrastructure and determine what needs to be done to enhance, diffuse, and sustain it. [This report was produced as part of the Postsecondary State Policy Network, an initiative led by Jobs for the Future in conjunction with the Achieving the Dream National Reform Network.]
