CCSSE Honors Consortium


Open Call for Participation in the 2020 CCSSE Honors Consortium

We are pleased to announce a call for interested parties at NCHC two-year degree member institutions to join the Honors Consortium for the spring 2020 administration of the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE). The CSSE is a well-established and widely utilized tool that assists community colleges in their quest to engage in sound educational practice and identify needed improvements in student programs and services.

This project, organized by a special working group of the NCHC Research Committee, offers participating institutions the possibility of comparing honors to non-honors students on every item in the standard CCSSE survey, which asks about institutional practices and student behaviors that are highly correlated with student learning and retention.

For full details, please see the Call for Participation document in the table below.

Honors program contacts should work to secure commitments from campus stakeholders and submit a signed CCSSE data sharing agreement by September 5, 2019 in order to be considered for any possible NCHC grant funds.

For those interested in joining the CCSSE Honors Consortium, please contact consortium coordinator, Dr. Jane Honeycutt, chair of the Research Committee Community College Consortium Working Group.
