  • Gain a basic understanding of the sociological theories through your class lectures and reading.
  • Explore student success ideas from your peers through interviews.
  • Read published literature (articles, books, chapters, etc.) to explore the history of community colleges and the current conversations surrounding student success as it relates to the social uniting process.
