Student Experience

The Student Experience work at Chemeketa defines our approach to student success, and provides a framework for these efforts. It encompasses interactions throughout a student’s academic career at the college; reaching out to prospective students, supporting and retaining them while they meet their educational and experiential goals, and then connecting these students to their next steps in careers and education. The work is accomplished through initiatives such as Strategic Enrollment Management, which enables the college to identify enrollment goals aligned with our mission and strategic plan; and Guided Pathways, which provides students clear direction and support regarding career and educational goals.
