Access, Retention & Completion Committee (ARC)


Mission: The Access, Retention and Completion (ARC) Committee is a collaborative effort where representatives from constituent groups across the College prioritize, coordinate and shepherd the multiple projects and tasks derived from Strategic Priorities, Targeted Tasks and Institutional Activities related to Access, Retention and Completion. ARC is a continuation of efforts begun by the Strategic Enrollment Management Committee (2007-2011) which is no longer a functioning committee.

In keeping with the larger vision of the institution, ARC seeks to build a system of decision-making that incorporates the College’s current process and continues to build and maintain the appropriate enrollment for today and into our future. This will be accomplished by ensuring that we attend to each core theme of appropriate, adaptable, and accountable transfer education, career and technical education, essential skills and lifelong learning.

Charge: Through research, best practice implementation, and student engagement practices, ARC participants, in consultation with the Instructional Standards and Procedures Committee as appropriate, will inform and guide the college regarding institutional priorities and enrollment management practices and policies.

ARC recommendations will be presented to College Council or other relevant committees (e.g. ISP) as needed for review and discussion. Policy changes will be referred to President’s Council as appropriate. NOTE: Reporting aspects may be adjusted due to current college-wide committee structure conversations.

Last College Council Presentation: 5/21/2019

  • In order to have an effective membership representative of the entire college, representatives from each of the instructional divisions (Academic Foundations and Connections -AFaC, Technology, Health Occupations, Workforce Division - TAPS, Arts and Sciences - AS, and Institutional Effectiveness and Planning - IEP) is needed. Because many enrollment practices and strategies directly impact Enrollment and Student Services, the committee must include the directors from those areas. When at all possible, students should be included on the committee.
