Wheelhouse conducts, translates, packages and disseminates timely, relevant, rigorous, third-party research to inform policy development for Community College leaders and state and local policymakers. Our goal is to present information that is both actionable and readily understood.
Our annual CEO Survey is an important pulse-taking for the Community College System as a whole. We also use it to inform curriculum development in our leadership institutes.
Our Research Briefs are designed to present clear findings and recommendations for audiences including policymakers, elected and administrative college leadership, and the general public.
Our peer reviewed briefs, written by researchers conducting timely and rigorous inquiry into community college issues, are designed to bring trends, challenges and accomplishments into sharp focus for audiences ranging from district and college CEOs to state and local policymakers to the general public.
The goal of the briefs is to cull the most salient findings, render them in readable prose, and provide key policy questions or recommendations on action steps supported by evidence. We look to provide not just the “what,” but the “so, what.”
