  2. Have you coordinated with local high school(s) to create or expand dual/concurrent enrollment programs?
  3. Are admissions criteria and academic placement policies written in plain language and publicly available (including: materials required for admission, cut scores, multiple measures that might be used, etc.)?
  4. Does your institution invest in summer bridge programs or concurrent enrollment courses to reduce/eliminate remedial education coursework?
  5. Does your institution encourage students to participate in experiential learning programs, clinical experiences, internships, or other types of on-the-job training models?

  7. Does your institution have a formal process to collect employer input on curriculum and program development/improvement?
  8. Does your institution actively engage non-traditional student populations? Does your institution have a formal process to collect student and graduate input on curriculum and program development/improvement?
  9. Does your institution conduct institutional research to understand the types of support services and programs, like dual enrollment or others, that contribute positively to student enrollment and completion outcomes?
  10. Does your institution have a process for regularly engaging K12 schools and educators to scale career-connected learning opportunities for youth?
