Alamo Colleges Chosen for National Project

The Alamo Colleges is the only community college system in Texas and one of only ten community colleges nationwide selected to join Phase Two of the Developing a Community College Student Roadmap Project. The project, overseen by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U), is funded by a grant from the MetLife Foundation. The new cohort of colleges, which includes Alamo Colleges, will collaborate with the twelve institutions already participating in the project, all of whom are leaders in improving community college success.

The colleges in the new cohort were selected through a rigorous application and evaluation process conducted by national leaders in education, who chose colleges who are poised to become national models in supporting and advancing community college student success. They will begin developing and implementing their plans in January 2013.

"We are pleased to receive this recognition of our leadership in improving student success," said Alamo Colleges' Chancellor Dr. Bruce Leslie. "Our participation in this national initiative is an important step in furthering the vision of the Alamo Colleges—to become the best community college in that nation in student success," he added.

The Roadmap Project assists community colleges in creating robust, proactive programs of academic support—tied to expected learning outcomes—that engage students when they enter college and teach them how to become active partners in their own quest for success. The project seeks to "connect the dots" among the multiple student support programs at community colleges and to create roadmaps for success applicable at multiple institutions. These roadmaps will be anchored in a set of expected learning outcomes essential for all students to succeed in life beyond college.

Each Roadmap college will work to ensure that its student success programs are integrated with, and reinforced by, its own culture. The colleges will develop and coordinate practices and policies that support engaged learning, provide meaningful assessment data about learning outcomes and help build a community of support for high achievement.

At the Alamo Colleges, high quality education and low costs provide exceptional value to students and alumni who are major contributors to the economy and culture of our community.
