What:
Chancellor Carey will visit Lorain County Community College (LCCC) to hear about new findings from the Ohio Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP). In 2014, LCCC, Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, and Cuyahoga Community College set out to address their low-income students’ needs by turning to a proven-effective program: The ASAP program developed by the City University of New York (CUNY). ASAP requires students to enroll full time and provides comprehensive financial, academic, and support services. Early results in 2016 found that the Ohio programs created increases in full-time enrollment, credits earned, and persistence into the second semester. A new study has looked at further effects, including improved graduation rates.

Who:
Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) Chancellor John Carey; LCCC President Marcia Ballinger; Christine Brongniart, interim university executive director, CUNY ASAP; Colleen Sommo, senior associate, MDRC research firm; ODHE staff, Ohio ASAP students.
