Working Students Success Network (WSSN): Final Outcomes Evaluation Report

The Working Students Success Network (WSSN), an expansion of the Working Families Success Network into community colleges, represents an innovative, comprehensive strategy for supporting low-income students and students of color. The WSSN strategy brings together and integrates access to a full range of services and supports to help students improve their financial knowledge, budgeting skills and choice of financial products, and develop and implement achievable career plans, putting students on a path to securing marketable postsecondary credentials and achieving economic success. Nineteen community colleges in four states— Arkansas, California, Virginia, and Washington—received financial and implementation support to develop and provide services and to move toward sustainability of the WSSN strategy following the end of the grant period. 

This report presents the findings of the independent evaluation of the WSSN strategy. The evaluation included an implementation study and an outcomes study, as well as technical assistance to support colleges’ administrative data collection and reporting for the outcomes evaluation. The implementation study was designed to document key aspects of WSSN implementation and measure progress toward sustaining the strategy beyond the grant period.
