About Us

The overall purpose of PRIME is to implement clear, efficient, aligned, successful evidence-based quantitative paths for students in associate-degree programs at community colleges. Furthermore, this work is meant to provide guidance around the process and models for implementing such changes at other community colleges. The paths developed are being designed to prepare students for their majors, jobs, lives as informed global citizens, and status as lifelong learners. The course credits obtained while taking these classes are also transferable to four year undergraduate institutions, enabling students to persist beyond the associate degree if they so choose. The ultimate goal of this work is to significantly increase graduation rates at the community college level through increasing students' successful completion of quantitative coursework.
