The Community College Practice-Research-Policy Exchange

Who We Are

Led by the North Carolina State University Belk Center for Community College Leadership and Research and the University of Maryland Global Campus Program in Community College Policy and Administration, the Community College Practitioner-Research-Policy Exchange is a first-of-its-kind, national community college initiative that will work with key national 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 practitioner consumable formats that will promote research-informed policies and best practices at community colleges throughout the country.
