Each year, NCII invites 10 to 15 colleges to join its Attitude, Agency, and Intensive Implementation (A2I2) Cohort.
Over two years, A2I2 Cohort participants engage in deep-dive work on implementing guided pathways and student financial stability reforms, all with the goal of helping more students attain their academic and life goals.
The A2I2 Cohort is not a train-the-trainers model. NCII conducts intensive on-site work with leadership, faculty, and staff. Services and support throughout the two years include six site visits as well as ongoing support between the visits.
The A2I2 Cohort helps colleges build on their existing efforts and make institutional change at scale so all students have a genuine opportunity to succeed. A2I2 colleges also form a learning community that helps member colleges reshape their institutions to improve their completion rates.
