- as of May 7, 2012 -

In Spring 2010, a special task force was organized to strategically work on the planning and assessment of City Colleges intervention efforts to address the student achievement gap, and to assist in the implementation of those plans with the various College divisions and departments.   

The Taskforce includes representatives of all College constituencies--students, classified staff, faculty, and administrators.
