Introducing the Get Engaged Program

Community Colleges play an important role in the higher education landscape. While most people think of the traditional residential 4-year college experience, today more than 10 million students (approximately 40 percent of all undergraduates) are enrolled in community colleges in the U.S.  

You may remember back in 2011 when we partnered with the League of Innovation and offered the Getting Connected Grant to eight Community Colleges. After an exciting year of research we’ve decided to create a new program to expand our research to 12 more community colleges from 2013-2016.

Program Information
