Completion rates in community colleges are improving slightly – but there is still significant work to be done. Beyond college policies and processes, it is time to focus our completion agenda work on the people…the students. “Grit” is now being recognized by researchers as perhaps one of the most significant variables in student success. In partnership with Dr. Paul G. Stoltz, LSC-Tomball conducted groundbreaking research to validate GRIT as a key to improving student outcomes.
