Shifting higher education structures and systems to support this prospective student population can serve as a critical component to addressing California’s workforce shortage. Yet the needs of those with some college but no credential, who disproportionately come from underinvested populations, remain understudied in the postsecondary landscape—leaving institutions and policymakers with few evidence-based solutions to improve their educational outcomes. To bridge this gap, California Competes, in collaboration with CaliforniaAttain! partners, conducted research and organized a community of practice to better understand the needs and experiences of returning students. Join us for the release of a new publication and an insightful panel discussion that explores what we’ve learned, the resulting institutional changes, and the next steps for both institutions and the state to better support comebackers and increase re-enrollment and degree attainment.
