The Community College Baccalaureate and Its Role in the Higher Education System

This webinar focuses on the role of the Community College Baccalaureate (CCB) in helping community colleges fulfill their mission of providing student pathways toward economic mobility. Students voice why they chose the CCB degree to create an understanding of why this higher education evolution is one of the most democratizing strategies in several decades. The collegewide impact of the CCB degree, and particularly the role faculty play in the development, implementation, teaching, evaluation, and mentoring of their adult students are explored. Participants gain a better understanding of the CCB within the broader context of a national movement that impacts and creates opportunities for students to achieve the American dream for themselves and their families.
