  • Welcome! This overview describes Completion by Design, a new effort in support of student success in community colleges.
  • In the United States, nearly half of all college students are enrolled in community colleges.
  • They aspire to earn a degree or credential that prepares them for further education or success in the workplace.
  • Yet, a range of obstacles confront these students – and, the colleges that work so hard to shepherd them.
  • Low completion rates are of national concern: Lack of education impacts families and communities, as well as the economic and competitive strength of our country.
  • In response, community colleges across the country have renewed focuson raising student completion rates.Many adopt educational initiatives that now exist to help improve student success.
  • Completion by Design is a 5-year community college re-design effort, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
  • Most unique about this effort is its comprehensive approach. Completion by Design facilitates a data-driven, holistic evaluation and improvement of systems, across the entire lifecycle of the student experience.
  • CDAT - the Completion By Design Assistance Team – serves as the hub for the initiative. It coordinates the National Assistance Team, and both partner closely with college personnel.
  • Together, we analyze the student’s full experience of the college, as a path across 4 phases:Connection, Entry, Progress, and, Completion.
  • Research shows that in each phase, a host of issues can arise.  The result? A loss of momentum.
  • We help the colleges examine their own data – to understand exactly when, where and why students succeed, drop out, or simply languish.
  • Then, the colleges strengthen and integrate strategies that help students more quickly find or solidify their direction, and stay on track.  The result? A gain in momentum.
  • Completion by Design is not a pilot program. It is not focused on just one aspect of change, nor on one specific student population.
  • As a result, it aligns well with or enhances other higher education efforts already under way.
  • In 2011, Completion by Design launched with 21 colleges across 4 states.
  • These colleges were selected for their:Pioneering vision, capacity to embrace the ambitious goals of Completion by Design, and their ability to serve as role models in their states.
  • All this makes Completion by Design an innovative catalyst for deep, systemic cultural change in community colleges across the country.

  • Thank you! For learning about Completion by Design, a national effort to help community colleges transform the student experience, from aspiration to accomplishment.
