Student Success Center

Student Success Center network member logo


The Washington Student Success Center assists our community and technical college system to create a coherent, statewide framework to evaluate, align, and integrate their work in various student success initiatives, grounded in developing student-centered colleges, clear pathways and broad-scale change.

Through the Center’s work, Washington’s Community and Technical Colleges have access to shared resources, professional development opportunities — to learn from and build on outstanding work at their neighboring and peer institutions, and support to scale effective practices statewide.

The Washington Student Success Center’s three priorities are: 

  1. Increasing completion rates of our students.
  2. Closing the equity gap for underrepresented, low-income, and first-generation students.
  3. Offering professional development opportunities to colleges to do this work, as well as build greater capacity for systemic change leadership.
