When kids matter, when the work shift matters, when some else needs to use the car matters, when "all my other stuff is at home matters", its really really tough to help commuter students feel like they belong to a community.
Class ends, heads down to phones (if not already on them towards the end of class), and everyone scatters to what matters.
Can commuters and community Co-Exist?
Everyone wants better retention, better completion, and wants student success.
Everyone wants their students to feel like they are part of a community because it contributes to the desired outcomes, and less student drop off.
But with commuter students, where is the room for community?
The National Science Foundation whose mission is to support research and people who create knowledge that transforms the future, has backed us with a Phase II grant award to make a massive impact.
We're seeking 24 commuter schools who are wrestling with the question "Can my commuters feel like they are part of a community?" and who believe community equates to persistence.
