How N.C. community colleges are working to keep students in college

Tuesday, August 02, 2022

Over 40% of fall 2020 community college first-year students did not return to college their second year, according to data from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center. Often students are forced to drop out or cut back on classes because life happens – such events include homelessness, food insecurity, mental health crises, transportation issues, lack of child care options, problems with technology, and so on.
