Complete College America, 15 to Finish: From Idea to Action

CCA 15 to Finish webinar 4-29-14 (.pdf)

Established in 2009, Complete College America is a national nonprofit with a single mission: to work with states to significantly increase the number of Americans with quality career certificates or college degrees and to close attainment gaps for traditionally underrepresented populations. Most “full-time” college students are not taking the credits needed to graduate on time, instead opting for course loads that put them on 3- and 4-year plans for their associate degree and 5- and 6-year plans for their bachelor’s. The result—thousands of dollars more in student loan debt and an increased likelihood that students won’t make it to graduation day. This presentation, given by Joanne Itano on April 29, 2014 in a national webinar hosted by CCA, highlighted the work being done here in Hawaiʻi, where “15 to Finish” originated.
