Faculty Voices

The League's Faculty Voices Project engaged community college faculty, both full- and part-time, in the national conversation about student success and completion to (a) identify issues, challenges, and concerns faculty have about the national focus on student completion; and (b) identify ways faculty—individually and in college-wide efforts—support student success, retention, and completion. The four-year project (2014-2017) was funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

About Faculty Voices

Project staff invited community college faculty to join the Faculty Voices conversation in various ways, including national surveys, stakeholder conversations, moderator workshops, focus groups, social media, and publications. Findings from project activities will be presented in reports to community college educators and administrators, association and foundation staff, policy makers, and other stakeholders. Project findings are intended to provide insight into faculty perceptions and thus help inform decisions made around topics such as tools and strategies for improving student learning and completion, faculty and staff professional development, collegewide initiatives related to student success and completion, and organizational structures that affect teaching and learning.
