Promising Practices (April 2016)

Promising Practices is a group of three briefing reports aimed at leaders in community colleges and the workforce development field. These reports highlight innovative capacity-development initiatives that increase the ability for students – especially low-income and traditionally underserved students – to access and succeed in programs offered by community colleges.

Published in April 2016, the Promising Practices briefing reports are part of a series of reports and tools jointly published by the Aspen Institute Workforce Strategies Initiative and Achieving the Dream. The series is based on cases from a group of seven community colleges included within the US Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training grant consortium. AspenWSI and Achieving the Dream managed the grant consortium’s peer learning community from 2013 to 2016, and observed several innovative practices during that time. The Promising Practices briefing reports are based on those observations, as well as interviews, data reports, and document reviews with the colleges.

We invite all community college and workforce development leaders, as well as those interested in improving career education for low- and moderate-income workers, to read these briefing reports.
