Asset-building strategies in community colleges


Abstract: The profile of an average college student today is not what you might think. The stereotypical image of a college student?right out of high school, living in the dorm, with parents footing the bill?is no longer the reality. Today, the typical college student is a working adult with one or more dependents and is juggling at least part-time work and full-time family responsibilities while pursuing college credit hours or a job-training certificate.
