Postsecondary State Policy Network

The Postsecondary State Policy Network, led by Jobs for the Future in conjunction with Achieving the Dream, is a multistate collaboration committed to advancing state policy agendas that accelerate community college student success and completion. The network evolved out of the policy efforts for the Achieving the Dream National Reform Network, including the Developmental Education Initiative. The network includes 13 states that are continuing their work with support from Achieving the Dream and the Completion by Design and Student Success Center initiatives. JFF helps teams from the states maximize peer learning and develop and implement policies that promote community college student success.

The Postsecondary State Policy Network has two primary goals:

  1. Help states design administrative, system, and legislative policies that support these institutional reform strategies
  2. Spread emerging lessons and models across the states

To accelerate institutional change toward more systemic and student-focused structured pathways, the policy network advocates for the high-leverage policies. The policies are organized in a framework that seeks to support students’ pathways from connection to college through completion.
