Achieving the Dream
After focusing on the first year experience for several years and establishing a plan for this time frame, the Leadership team decided to create the Progression and Completion sub-team at the urging of the college's ATD coaches. This team is comprised of eleven members from across campus that works to bring about broad systemic change to policies and procedures concerning student progression through academic programs and completion of degrees and certificates. During its first year, the team determined the need to implement an automatic degree audit process to help students remain aware of their progress and help advisors and the Records office determine who may be close to completing a degree or certificate. A smaller task force created an automatic degree audit system for the 2014, 2015, and 2016 catalogs and will continue updating curriculum requirements and adding new programs with each additional catalog release.
