Implementing Corequisite Supports with Equity-Focused Tools and Resources

August 24, 2021|By Connie Richardson

There are a lot of questions and misconceptions about the best way to support postsecondary students who have been designated as underprepared. Corequisite supports that are designed and implemented with the local contexts and needs of students, courses, and faculty in mind have consistently positive results for students.
This toolkit from the Dana Center and Strong Start to Finish is grounded in design principles that were developed by a National Advisory Panel of researchers and practitioners in the field. The principles are high-level and aligned with the Core Principles; the toolkit provides recommendations for how corequisite supports can be customized to best serve the students within a particular institutional context. 
The equity-focused tools and resources provide guidance for an institutional leadership team to go from planning, to implementation, to scale and go through continuous improvement with corequisite supports. The breadth of the kit means that institutions that are already at some level of implementation can also find tools to support continued work.
