Title:Student voices on the higher education pathway: Preliminary insights & stakeholder engagement concerns
Organization:Public Agenda
Short Description:The purpose of the research presented here is to support and reinforce student-centered reforms by providing another vehicle for student voices. To support community college leaders’ ongoing deliberations about how to integrate a student perspective into the reform process, Public Agenda and WestEd conducted focus groups in March 2012, during which they asked current and former students about the relationship between their goals for, and experiences in, college.
Annotation:Efforts to improve student learning and success at community colleges are in the national policy spotlight. Colleges around the country are reviewing their institutional practices and gathering groups of education stakeholders to design and then implement changes in advising, developmental education, programs of study and curricula, student service delivery, transfer and articulation, and more. One of the central tenets of current efforts is to keep changes and improvements “student-centered”— that is, to keep the ultimate goal of improving the student experience in sight throughout the process of change. To this end, keeping students’ voices and experiences at the center of reform plans can enhance the legitimacy of proposed reforms, their effectiveness, and their sustainability. The purpose of the research presented here is to support and reinforce student-centered reforms by providing another vehicle for student voices. To support community college leaders’ ongoing deliberations about how to integrate a student perspective into the reform process, Public Agenda and WestEd conducted focus groups in March 2012, during which they asked current and former students about the relationship between their goals for, and experiences in, college.
