Aims Community College

In the role of Chief Academic and Student Affairs Officer, Geri Anderson provided leadership for all community college academic and student affairs policy review and development, ensured the development and enhancement of high quality career and technical and transfer education programs through on-going program review, assessment of student learning, high academic standards and the expansion of scholarship/creative activity.

Geri spearheaded The Colorado Community College System’s remedial education reform initiative and guided significant policy changes through the system board resulting in dramatic changes to the delivery of remedial education across the entire system. She convened a task force of remedial education leaders from across the system and guided a change process that resulted in broad support from faculty, administration and ultimately the system board. The new system level policy ensures all CCCS students have the opportunity to pass gateway courses and enter programs of study in their first academic year. As a result, the system is experiencing dramatic improvements in gateway course success rates, particularly in English.

What interests you?

15 to Finish

Boost the number of students who are on track for on-time graduation by encouraging enrollment in 15 credits each semester (30 credits per year, including summers). Financial aid dollars, as well as institutional process and practice, should support that standard.

Math Pathways

Ensure all students enroll in and complete gateway math in their first year by designing math courses that are aligned with the skills students need for their chosen program of study.

Corequisite Support

Increase gateway course completion within the first year by enrolling entering students into the college-level math and English courses, providing those who need additional help a concurrent course or lab that offers just-in-time academic support.

Momentum Year

Build momentum so students meet first-year benchmarks: informed choice of meta major or major, enrollment in 30 credits with nine in the program of study and completion of gateway courses. Provide early support and guidance for decision making, using interest assessments and labor-market data.

Academic Maps with Proactive Advising

Default students onto highly-structured academic maps that include 15 credits per semester (or 30 per year), indicate milestone and pre-requisite courses, and empower advisors to effectively monitor progress and provide intervention as needed.

A Better Deal for Returning Adults

Increase degree attainment by inviting adult learners back to complete their education, providing a redesigned system that offers accelerated courses, year-round enrollment and predictable schedules. Give credit for prior learning and experience and additional support to help students navigate the system.
