    Connect2Complete Resource Guide

    The success of the C2C program has prompted Campus Compact to create this Resource Guide to help colleges implement the C2C model on their own campuses. The guide is designed for a broad range of audiences, including community engagement professionals, faculty, student leaders, administrators, and presidents. While resources contained within this guide were developed on the basis of the experiences, needs, and cultures of community colleges, the model has garnered interest from four-year institutions offering developmental education, which can adapt the information here for their own use. The guide is divided into four sections, each focusing on a different aspect…

    Section 4: C2C Program Evaluation

    Section 4, Program Evaluation, provides resources for conducting a C2C evaluation, including information on measuring program impact and the C2C Evaluation Report from the C2C pilot program. While program evaluation is included near the end of the Resource Guide, it’s important to note that evaluation is not an event that occurs at the end of a project; rather, it’s an ongoing process that should start at the outset, with systems put in place to support evaluation in the early stages of program planning. /wp-content/uploads/2015/04/C2C_resourcebook-section4.3.19.15.pdf

    Section 3: C2C Program Administration

    Section 3, Program Administration, includes resources for planning and managing a C2C program. While this section addresses faculty and peer advocate roles, it focuses more closely on the administrator’s role. This section offers resources for planning and launching a C2C program on campus, including information on assessing readiness, staffing, structuring, and budgeting for such a program. It also provides resources for recruiting and supporting faculty as well as for recruiting, screening, training, and supporting peer advocates. /wp-content/uploads/2015/04/C2C_resourcebook-section3.3.19.15.pdf

    Section 2: Implementing C2C in the Classroom

    Section 2, Implementing C2C in the Classroom, presents a comprehensive view of what C2C looks like in the classroom. It begins with two documents that explore considerations for faculty implementing the C2C strategy in their developmental education and college success courses: how to implement service-learning with a particularly vulnerable population, and approaches for integrating the C2C strategy into redesigned developmental education courses. The section also offers sample materials for supporting faculty and peer advocates in integrating C2C into the classroom, including faculty-created descriptions of peer-assisted service-learning coursework and activities. /wp-content/uploads/2015/04/C2C_resourcebook-section2.3.19.15.pdf

    Section 1: The C2C Model

    Section 1, The C2C Model, provides readers with a high-level understanding of the C2C strategy. It begins with an overview that paints a picture of what the program looks like on the ground. A review of the theory and assumptions underlying C2C connects theory with outcomes for participants. Discussions of service-learning and peer advocacy summarize research on the positive impact of these approaches on student success, review the integrated C2C approach in depth, and lay the foundation for C2C implementation (explored in later sections).
