Developed a postsecondary version of the Check & Connect student engagement model to increase students' ability to overcome barriers and persist in successful program completion in community college settings. Check & Connect is a targeted, intensive, comprehensive intervention model to enhance student engagement at school and with learning that has been validated with elementary to secondary level students. The outcome of this project was a model that addressed persistence at the community college level and that is ready for an efficacy trial.
