About the Center

The Ohio Community College Student Success Center, a three year grant funded initiative supported by the Kresge Foundation, will serve as a statewide hub to assist our 23 colleges to significantly improve student success outcomes.  The Center will provide the focus and the coordination for all colleges to benefit from the various student success and completion initiatives previously and currently being implemented.  We will work to assist the colleges in their adoption of data driven approaches and evidence-based practices, leading to the increase of the number of students at high risk to persist and progress toward completion of a certificate, degree, or transfer.


  1. To support the Colleges as they Reform Developmental Education
  2. To build Institutional Capacity for Data-Driven Decision-Making
  3. To leverage the evidence-based practices that have emerged from the various initiatives currently and formerly in place in Ohio’s community colleges.
