Founded in 2014, the Success Center provides strategic thought partnership to the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office. Through professional learning, policy development, and strategic projects, the Success Center assists the Chancellor’s Office in its effort to implement large-scale, systemwide student success reforms.
The California Community College system’s Vision for Success was adopted by the Board of Governors in 2017. This included a set of bold systemwide goals and commitments designed to ensure that the largest system of higher education in the nation helps students achieve their educational and career goals while also meeting the workforce needs of the state. The Success Center considers this document its “North star” and maintains a strict focus on the Vision for Success as it supports the Chancellor’s Office work to achieve these goals.
