CCSSE Consortia

Consortia Join CCSSE’s 2017 Membership

(All Years)

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 Delaware Technical and Community Colleges, Kentucky Community and Technical College System, Texas State Technical College, and the University of Hawaii Community Colleges have formed statewide and state system-wide consortia for CCSSE 2018.

Additionally, colleges have formed state-based consortia in Arkansas, Connecticut, Illinois, Minnesota, New York, and Texas.

This administration’s system-based, district-based, and multi-campus consortia are Cuyahoga Community College (OH), the Seattle Colleges (WA), and Vincennes University (IN).


The remaining three CCSSE 2018 consortia are common-interest groups.

The Achieving the Dream Consortium includes 93 colleges from 31 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 25 institutions across thirteen states.

Twenty-three Tribal Colleges are participating as part of the Tribal Student Success and Completion Project funded by the Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation. The project is designed to improve student success and completion by collecting and analyzing data and identifying priorities for improvement.
