Queensborough Community College is a “Roadmap” college!
The Roadmap Project
Developing a Community College Student Roadmap: From Entrance to Engagement in Educational Achievement and Success, part of the Association of American Colleges & Universities’ Liberal Education America’s Promise project, is designed to assist community colleges in creating robust and proactive programs of academic support—tied to expected learning outcomes—that engage students at entrance and teach them how to become active partners in their own quest for educational success. It is supported by a grant from MetLife Foundation.
Queensborough Community College was named in The Roadmap Project as one of a dozen community colleges poised to become national models in supporting student success. Collectively, these leadership institutions work to take what are often isolated and independent student success efforts and create an integrated roadmap to support both student persistence and higher levels of academic achievement.
