Community colleges have traditionally focused resources to support student success and completion by providing services and delivery models that are responsive to the needs of their student body. As universities look to the future of their delivery design, community colleges can provide best practice and strategic models that could be adaptable to other educational sectors. Our community colleges can provide valuable lessons for the rest of the industry.
