Libraries are pulling more weight than one would expect when it comes to student success at community colleges, according to a recent report by Ithaka S+R.
The report, titled “Student Focused: Fostering Cross-Unit Collaboration to Meet the Changing Needs of Community College Students,” involved interviews with 37 chief academic officers (CAOs), chief student affairs officers (CSAOs), library directors, faculty and students from U.S. community colleges. The interviews took place between February and November 2020.
