Learning 2 Lead Program Completes Successful Year

NVC has conducted the Learning 2 Lead student leadership certificate program since the fall of 2012.  This is a 20 hour, 20-hour, co-curricular leadership development program designed to help Alamo Colleges students develop the basic knowledge and skills essential for effective and ethical leadership.  Students completing the program gain knowledge and build skills in areas such as conflict management, time management, team building, and the Covey 7 Habits.  

Since fall 2012, 717 students have attended a Learning 2 Lead event and 73 students have completed the entire 20 hour certificate program.   83.3% of the participating students rated the program as excellent; another 16.67% of the students rated the program as very good.   When asked to determine improvement in their skills, 33.3% of the responding students reported that their skills improved a “great deal”.  An additional 50% responded that their skills had improved “a lot”.  Almost 92% of the students believed that their program prepared them for a current or future job or a transfer to a 4 year college or university. 

 

NVC One of the Best Performing Colleges in Math for NCCBP 

For 2014, NVC was identified as a top performing college in several key areas in the results from the National Community College Benchmark project (NCCBP).  Two charts below identify NVC student success for math outcomes.  NVC was among the highest performing schools for the “% of students that received a passing grade in Math Developmental/Remedial Courses of those completing the course” as shown in the first chart.  Colleges with passing rates greater than 81.41% were above the 90th percentile for schools in the NCCBP for 2014 and regarded as top performers.  NVC had a completion rate of 86. 41%.  Del Mar College was the only other Texas College scoring above the 90th percentile.  
 
NVC had strong results for students successfully completing College Algebra classes as well.  While not quite reaching the 90th percentile mark of 86.67%, NVC was close at 85.53% for the “% of Students that Received a Passing Grade of those that Completed College Algebra” found in the second chart below.  This is indicative of an outstanding overall math program from Developmental through Algebra.
