Date:2008
Organization:Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE)
Short Description:This report presents preliminary findings from the 2007 pilot of the Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE). Community colleges typically lose about half of their students prior to the students’ second college year. This level of attrition is so dramatic that it demands the attention of everyone interested in helping more community college students succeed.
Annotation:This report presents preliminary findings from the 2007 pilot of the Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE). Community colleges typically lose about half of their students prior to the students’ second college year. This level of attrition is so dramatic that it demands the attention of everyone interested in helping more community college students succeed. National data show that students with certain characteristics are at greater risk of leaving college before their second year. Those who drop out are disproportionately students of color, low-income students, and academically underprepared students.
