Booklets

The Quest for Student Success at Community Colleges is Inside Higher Ed's latest compilation of articles.

As with other such print-on-demand booklets, the compilation groups together pieces that explore different strategies used by faculty members and institutions -- and efforts to track their success.

The booklet is free and you may download a copy here.

And you may sign up here for a free webinar on Wednesday, March 25, at 2 p.m. Eastern about the themes of the booklet.

This booklet was made possible in part through the advertising support of ETS.
