MATH AND STUDENT SUCCESS PROJECTS AND INITIATIVES

PROJECTS RELATED TO IMPROVING OUTCOMES IN DEVELOPMENTAL MATH
  • Academy for College Excellence

    The Academy for College Excellence (ACE) has developed strategies that can help community colleges identify and assess their current approaches to working with vulnerable students and support changes to increase their effectiveness with these students. Described on the ACE website as a full-time, first-semester transformational learning experience with proven results, ACE provides underprepared students with knowledge and skills to succeed in today’s economy, including areas such as teamwork, communication, computer use, and leadership and management. The curriculum also focuses on building student potential through development of skills and strategies for accurate self-efficacy, self-motivation, mature behavior, self-awareness, personal goal setting, personal responsibility, individual self-exploration, self-improvement, and persistence. ACE’s effectiveness is demonstrated through higher retention rates than the average community college student population and improved academic success for students.
