Community College Transforms Student Outcomes

In 2016, Arkansas proposed a Higher Education Productivity Funding Model that would tie levels of higher education funding to student outcomes, not just enrollment numbers. As a two-year community college, Arkansas State University-Newport (ASU-Newport) saw this pending model as an opportunity to reassess its strategy, systems and processes.
