“I believe that the focus on increasing student success rates has had a positive effect, and I am optimistic that we will continue to make progress.”

– GEORGE BOGGS FORMER PRESIDENT AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES

“I think what this is showing is that the completion agenda cannot happen overnight. First you have to enroll the students, then you have to keep them and complete them.”
