Community colleges enroll half of the nation's undergraduates. Yet only 40 percent of entrants complete an undergraduate degree in six years. Redesigning America's Community Colleges explains how two-year colleges can increase their students' success rate quickly and at less cost, through a program of guided pathways to completion.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Thomas Bailey is the nation's preeminent scholar of community colleges. Together with distinguished researchers Shanna Jaggars and Davis Jenkins, Bailey expertly diagnoses the limitations of existing community college reforms and outlines a proposal for dramatic change. Redesigning America's Community Colleges is must reading for anyone who cares about making community colleges the engines for social mobility they were intended to be.--Richard D. Kahlenberg, The Century Foundation
[Redesigning America's Community Colleges is] meant to be honest, grounded, and useful, and it is. It gets the details right. I really can't recommend it highly enough.--Matt Reed"Inside Higher Ed" (03/30/2015)
Redesigning America's Community Colleges: A Clearer Path to Student Success is an important step forward for community colleges. The work bridges the all-too-familiar divide between research and practice, outlining actionable, transformative recommendations to improve student attainment that have emerged out of the extensive portfolio of research conducted over the past 20 years by the Community College Research Center at Teachers College of Columbia University. And while many aspects of the book deserve discussion, how change can be effectively instigated at community colleges is a pivotal issue on which any reform efforts will hinge.--James Jacobs"Inside Higher Ed" (05/12/2015)
