Community Colleges in the South: Strengthening Readiness and Pathways
Report of the SREB Commission on Community Colleges
The full report of SREB’s Community College Commission offers 21 recommendations for states and community colleges. It presents findings on readiness — including placement and math standards — and on structurally guided pathways to help students clearly see entry, exit and re-entry points to continue their education. The recommendations also
ask states to commit increased funding and hold community colleges accountable for improving student services and completion. The goal: increase college access and success so more students earn postsecondary credentials and enter careers in demand in their communities.
