The Community College Baccalaureate in Washington: Who Enrolls?

This second Data Note, on the Scaling Community College Baccalaureate Degrees: The Equity Imperative research project, provides a look into the factors that contribute to baccalaureate degree expansion, particularly in associate degree-granting institutions in a growing number of states.

Our Community College Research Initiatives (CCRI) group at the University of Washington has partnered with New America’s Center on Education and Skills (CESNA) to refresh and expand understanding of AB and CCB degrees nationally, looking again at state adoption and implementation of these degrees in the two- and four-year institutional contexts. With generous support from the Joyce Foundation and Lumina Foundation, our two-year project documents policies and processes; develops a set of consensus design principles and frameworks featuring evidence-based and equity-focused promising policies and practices on state adoption and institutional implementation; and disseminates lessons from past successes and failures.
