In 2010, President Barack Obama called for the nation's colleges and universities to increase their graduation rates by 2020. This challenge was issued in response to reports that less than half of American students finished college and, when compared to other countries, the United States' ranking for the number of college graduates it produces had declined.
Citrus College has risen to this challenge by establishing a collegewide initiative, "Citrus College: A College of Completion." College of Completion is designed to encourage and support students as they endeavor to complete their college education, transfer to baccalaureate degree programs, and enter the career fields of their choice.
The Citrus College community has rallied to support the College of Completion initiative by offering a variety of academic programs and student services that facilitate student success. In addition, faculty and staff continue to research and implement strategies that lead to higher student engagement, achievement, and ultimately, degree completion.
