Description:

Research on dual enrollment exists—such as that focused on state policy and participation rates—but what is missing from the equation is information about what students experience while they are dually enrolled. To understand how to ensure better access and promote positive outcomes for all students in dual enrollment programs, community colleges need to understand the dual enrollment experience from the perspective of students themselves. To this end, CCCSE, with assistance from an advisory panel of experts, developed the Dual Enrollment Survey of Student Engagement (DESSE) to help college leaders learn from these students. Almost 4,500 students responded to the fall 2022 DESSE pilot administration. Join CCCSE Executive Director Linda García as she highlights findings from the pilot administration and describes what CCCSE learned from dually enrolled student respondents in the areas of getting started, aspirations, support services, and teaching and learning. 

Presenter:

  • Dr. Linda García is the Executive Director of the Center for Community College Student
    Engagement (CCCSE) at The University of Texas at Austin. CCCSE delivers “aha” moments about the student experience to community college presidents, faculty, staff, and policymakers. Linda’s experience includes student development, instructional support, grant writing, and teaching. Linda served as a coach for the American Association of Community Colleges’ Pathways 2.0 and continues in this same role for the Texas Pathways Project.
