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.”
