The Community College Baccalaureate (CCB)
The purpose of this project is to compare and contrast student baccalaureate degree attainment for students who start their educational careers in three different educational pathways: (1) community college students who eventually transfer to four-year institutions, (2) students enrolling in baccalaureate degree programs in a community college, and (3) students initially enrolling at a four-year institution. Given the long-standing controversy over the role of the community college in student baccalaureate degree attainment, and the emergence of community college baccalaureate degree programs, this project will make a theoretical contribution and generate information keenly applicable to public policy conversation.
