Student Success and Equity

Student Success and Equity

Student Success & Equity Advisory Committee (SSEAC)


SSEAC is an advisory body that provides guidance for both the SSSP and Student Equity plans.

Student Success & Support Program (SSSP)(formerly Matriculation) is a process that enhances student access to the California Community Colleges and promotes and sustains the efforts of credit students to be successful in their educational endeavors.  

The goals of SSSP are to ensure that all students complete their college courses, persist to the next academic term, and achieve their educational objectives through the assistance of the student-direct components of the SSSP process: admissions, orientation, assessment and testing, counseling, and student follow-up.  

Student Equity focuses on increasing access, course completion, ESL and basic skills completion, degrees, certificates and transfer for all students as measured by success indicators.  "Success indicators" are used to identify and measure areas for which disadvantaged populations may be impacted by issues of equal opportunity.

Student Success Initiative is a California statewide effort to improve educational achievement in the California Community Colleges.  The Student Success Task Force recommended 22 specific policy changes to strengthen the community college system by expanding those structures and programs that work and realigning our resources with what matters most: student achievement.
