Supporting Community College Completion with a Culture of Caring: A Case Study of Amarillo College

This case study Funded by the Trellis Foundation focuses on Amarillo College’s Advocacy & Resource Center. It proposes a research study project designed to answer the question –Does Building an ARC Ensure Academic Success and Academic Attainment? 

The case study highlighted two key components of Amarillo College’s No Excuses Poverty Initiative:

  1. Eradicating a student’s poverty barriers leads to academic success
  2. Education is the path to economic revitalization. It also made key recommendations to further our work in eradicating student poverty barriers and increasing educational attainment for today’s community college students.
