Led by the University of Maryland Global Campus Program in Community College Policy and Administration and the North Carolina State University Belk Center for Community College Leadership and Research, the Community College Practice-Research-Policy Exchange is a national community college initiative that will work with key partners to build a two-way loop between practitioners and researchers to deliver empirical findings useful to practitioners in the field.

With assistance from the National Council of State Directors of Community Colleges, Achieving the Dream, and others, this project will:

  1. Develop a first-of-its-kind practitioner-defined national community college research agenda.

  2. Disseminate research findings in consumable formats that will promote research-informed policies and best practices at community colleges throughout the country.

We welcome your recommendations for the anticipated national community college research agenda here.
