Beliefs are overlooked and underestimated elements of the student success narrative. Let's change that.

Complete the Agenda in Higher Education: Challenge Beliefs About Student Success is a bold call to action to do more than just improve college completion rates. This book is for community college board members, administrators, faculty and staff who also want to: (1) foster beliefs that will enable students to finish what they start; (2) empower students to overcome daily challenges and real adversity; and (3) transform potential into achievement, for a lifetime.
Courageous educators, foundations, associations, and researchers made community colleges better than we were a decade ago. Completion rates have improved somewhat as a result, but too many students still do not finish because the Completion Agenda is incomplete.
This books describes compelling reasons why a shift from a “completion-only-mindset” to the Beliefs Agenda (Completion with GRIT) is critical for the future of America. It provides practical implementation methods, offers engaging teaching tactics, and proposes sensible strategies.

Changing the Culture of Higher Education:
From Completion to Beliefs Agenda
America's grittiest students achieve their goals despite real, complex and crippling adversity such as poverty and homelessness. Other students, however, lack necessary coping mechanisms to persist when faced with academic failure (perhaps for the first time) or when dealing with normal challenges of daily life. Others may have always struggled to learn or been told they were not "college material." Significant change requires more than creating new policies and programs. We must create experiences that drive beliefs around growth, resilience, instinct and tenacity.
