Consortia Join CCSSE's 2017 Membership
Many colleges choose to participate in the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) as members of a consortium. Consortia consist of three or more colleges in a multi-college district, system, or state, or of colleges with common interests and the willingness to share data. Members receive reports comparing their results to those of other colleges in the consortium and may elect to administer the same additional items for further comparison purposes.
More information about consortia can be found on the Membership Options page.
The Kentucky Community and Technical College System, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, Nebraska Community College System, Tennessee Community Colleges, and the Wyoming Community Colleges have formed statewide and state system-wide consortia for CCSSE 2017.
This administration's system-based, district-based, and multi-campus consortia are the Alamo Colleges (TX), Harrisburg Area Community College (PA), Kern Community College District (CA), Maricopa Community Colleges (AZ), Minnesota State Community & Technical College (MN), and Minnesota West Community & Technical College (MN).
The remaining two CCSSE 2017 consortia are common-interest groups.
The Achieving the Dream Consortium includes 64 colleges from 20 states; all are part of a national initiative focused on improving success rates for community college students.
The Hispanic Student Success (HSS) Consortium is open to colleges designated as Hispanic-Serving Institutions and to members of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) organization. This year's HSS Consortium includes 35 institutions across twelve states.
