Amidst the sobering backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, the California Community Colleges announced good news yesterday on progress toward meeting a set of systemwide goals for improving student success with marked growth in the conferring of the Associate Degree for Transfer.

In Chancellor Eloy Ortiz Oakley’s 2020 State of the System Report, the Chancellor reports out on progress toward goals laid out in the 2017 Vision for Success. The Vision for Success is an ambitious five year plan that calls for increasing by 20% the number of students earning a college credential annually, increasing by 35% the number of students transferring to the state’s public universities, and eliminating gaps in completion by race/ethnicity and income.
