CHALLENGE: Students Drop Out Because of Weak Support Networks
83% of our non-dually enrolled students attend RCC part-time and juggle work and family responsibilities. These challenges can be overwhelming and college is often the first responsibility to let go.
How can you help?
Contribute to the Crowther Student Success Endowment
This endowment, which honors RCC’s third president, Dr. Sissy Crowther, funds academic success coaches at the College and the resources those coaches need to effectively reach students. These coaches form a vital support network for our students.
Research since the 1980s shows that sustained, pro-active, and personal advising is one of the most effective tools for increasing college students’ retention and success.
