Student Success Committee


Oxnard College is a learning-centered institution that embraces academic excellence by providing multiple pathways to student success.



The Committee is recommended by staff and approved by the President.  The Committee is appointed by and is a participatory governance committee to the President and the Academic Senate of Oxnard College.


The purpose of the Student Success Committee is to develop, implement and assess a model that examines data for the evaluation of student success and advise appropriate shared governance bodies related to the charge of the committee and its findings.  The data elements will provide a foundation for examining effectiveness and will serve to frame recommendations. The focus of the committee will be to establish baselines, measures of effectiveness, on-going analysis and recommendations for improving student success for students at Oxnard College.  This committee directly supports Item No(s) 4 and 5 under 10+1.

Additionally, with the recent revisions to the Oxnard College Student Equity Plan, the Student Success Committee is tasked with serving as the college’s Student Equity Planning committee. As such, the Student Success Committee will be responsible for ongoing development, implementation and evaluation of the plan.
