BOT 14.01pr - Student Success : Procedure

This procedure explains the process for implementing Board policy BOT 14.0 Student Success.

The Board and President work collaboratively to advance student success.

1. Advocating for public policies that align resources with student success goals, initiatives, and support services.

  • Edmonds Community College will continue to be accountable to staying informed about and responsible for improving student success.
  • The Board of Trustees will communicate with its constituencies, legislators, and other public policy makers about the college’s goals and will advocate public policy decisions and resource allocations that support student success.

2. Requiring the college to implement policies to support student success.

  • The Board of Trustees requires the college to identify, publicize, and implement college policies and procedures that shape student success.  

3. Expecting the college to engage in evidence-based institutional improvement.

  • Promote collaboration across the organization and among various groups, by achieving consensus on the measures of student success, and by stressing that student success is everyone’s shared responsibility;
  • Collect and publish a variety of indicators on college performance, particularly related to equity in students’ academic performance and completion;
  • Use disaggregated student progress data (qualitative and quantitative) and cohort tracking to foster inquiry and improve programs, teaching, and learning; and
  • Engage in open and transparent conversations regarding data and information related to student success.

The college is directed to establish measurable student metrics: individual student’s educational goals, successful course completion, retention, persistence, certificate/degree attainment, transfer, and employment. Diversity goals address gaps in student outcomes across populations particularly among low-income students, students of color, students with disabilities, veterans, and their peers.
