Community colleges are essential to the regions they serve, as they offer opportunities for underserved students to succeed. But many aspects of the colleges still have room for improvement, such as meeting students’ basic needs. In a recent virtual discussion at The Chronicle, we explore new ideas as well as what higher education can learn from community colleges about best strategies.

Experts talk about some of the following issues during the online discussion:

  • Challenges and trends in enrollment at two-year colleges.
  • Innovations in student curricula.
  • Collaborations on transferring with four-year colleges.
