Project Description

Sacramento State’s Center for College & Career Readiness (CCR), focuses on student transition success, encompassing academic readiness as well as the metacognitive skill sets that students need in order to persist with grit and resiliency. With the rigorous Common Core State Standards in place, the CCR recognizes the importance of building an infrastructure of collaboration; as no institution alone can address college and career readiness in isolation. With this in mind, CCR’s main objective is to implement pathways to college success by facilitating regional partnerships with the primary mission of aligning curricula, expectations and standards between Pre K-12, the community colleges and Sacramento State. In essence, its focus is on students before the matriculate; those in the regional pipeline.
