Chancellor DuBois has hit the road this fall for a statewide Listening Tour to all 23 community colleges to learn about their Student Success efforts. As you may remember, last year, VCCS established a Student Success Leadership Institute to develop collaborative leadership teams – including leaders from all levels – and empower those teams to create a compelling and clear action plan for enhancing the overall student experience, and increasing the number of students who earn certificates, workforce credentials or associate degrees.

Each college presents one best-practice program or initiative that is improving student success outcomes as they relate to an academic program, student service, workforce development initiative, college business practice, or technology innovation. A facilitated discussion and Q&A will follow. In addition, each best practice will be entered in the New Horizon’s Excellence in Education Awards competition for 2017. The tour kicked off Sept. 1 and concludes Dec. 1.'
