California is investing money in expanding aid programs that benefit its community college students, which could be a sign that free two-year college is a possibility.

Surveys

April 17, 2015 -- Inside Higher Ed's 2015 Survey of Community College Presidents explored the views of two-year-college leaders on a range of timely topics. The study was conducted in conjunction with researchers from Gallup.

Inside Higher Ed regularly surveys key higher ed professionals on a range of topics.

On Thursday, May 28, at 2 p.m. EDT, Inside Higher Ed editors will analyze the survey's findings and answer readers' questions in a free webinar. To register, please click here.

The Inside Higher Ed survey of two-year-college presidents was made possible in part by advertising from Hobsons and Jenzabar.

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.
