Klamath Community College
At Klamath Community College (KCC), data and feedback have been established as top priorities. The college has administered the Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE) for the previous three years, and has sought feedback through on-campus surveys and student forums.
Working with expert Achieving the Dream coaches and data coaches, the college will focus on building its institutional research capacity and will:
- Build best practices for data collection
- Determine areas and departments in need of additional research data
- Establish processes for using data to inform institutional changes
In addition to the institutional level commitment to student success, the state of Oregon has passed legislation outlining an ambitious goal for 40% of Oregon residents to earn associates degrees or certificates by 2025. This plan reflects the states’ and KCC’s commitment to acting intentionally within a culture of measuring, learning and adapting to improve student success. KCC is proud to become an Achieving the Dream institution. The culture of evidence developed through this partnership will support student success goals.
KCC was established by voters in 1996, and served over 3,000 students in its first year. The college has since grown from renting facilities from local school districts and contracting with other colleges to provide educational services, to now occupying a more than 50 acre campus, serving nearly 5,500 students in 2010. From the beginning, KCCs mission has been to provide quality learning opportunities that enhance growth and development for the individuals, businesses and organizations within the greater community. The college has also committed to fostering a culture of continuous improvement that is accountable to its stakeholders.
KCC had a full-time equivalent enrollment of more than 2,000 in 2010 representing an increase of 23% since 2008.
