Achieving the Dream in Connecticut: State Policies Affecting Access to, and Success In, Community Colleges for Students of Color and Low-Income Students

Dougherty, Kevin J.; Kerrigan, Monica Reid

Connecticut is one of two states in the second round of the Achieving the Dream initiative. In joining the initiative along with Ohio, it brings in a northern state that is quite different from the five southern and southwestern states that comprised the first round of the Achieving the Dream initiative. This report provides an audit of state policies in Connecticut affecting access to, and success in, community colleges for students of color and low-income students. It is the product of intensive interviews that were conducted in Connecticut and an analysis of documents produced both by state agencies and external organizations, such as the Education Commission of the States.
