Student Success

Student success is the focus of everything we do at the Alamo Colleges. Student success involves getting students into and through college to a degree or certificate, enabling students to transfer to another institution of higher education or getting employment, and helping students achieve their goals. Student success involves different dimensions, performance improvement strategies, measurements, and units of analysis. The various dimensions of student success range from student flow across the entire educational pipeline to the quality and content of learning and skills achieved as a result of going to college to positive educational experiences, such as student engagement or satisfaction.
