· Student access and Success Research Centers equipped, staffed, and open on both campuses

Due to the reorganization of the college we have moved ahead with the hiring of the Programmer for the Center which was scheduled for year two.  We have been unable to hire the programmer due to insufficient pools.  We will put out the proposal again to see if we can complete the hire.  We have purchased the equipment for the center.


· Evaluation baselines/benchmarks 100% set, participating and non-participating cohorts selected

Benchmarks for English 253 and ESL 145 have been set.
