Technical and Career Education: An Important Part of the Higher Ed Continuum

  • Housatonic Community College 900 Lafayette Boulevard Bridgeport, CT, 06604 United States

How to have one and two-year programs, including exciting new options at community colleges, be a part of higher education alternatives for more high school graduates. How best to serve motivated students through programs that attract many challenged and under-represented students, including adult learners, but with widely disparate outcomes in retention, graduation, and ultimate debt levels in relation to ability to pay off those debts. CHERE expresses appreciation to the Travelers Foundation for generous support.
