Stackable Credentials in Career Education at California Community Colleges

October 23, 2018 · 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Capitol Event Center 1020 11th Street, second floor Sacramento, CA 95814

About the Program

Community colleges serve a wide range of students pursuing career education. Connecting these students to opportunities for career advancement is an important policy goal that can be furthered by stackable credentials—sequential certificates and degrees that allow students to build qualifications over time. PPIC researcher Shannon McConville will outline a new report that looks at the link between well-designed stackable pathways and student success in the community college system.
