The Teagle Foundation commissioned Policy Studies Associates to complete two studies related to Phase III of its College-Community Connections initiative. One study examined the college‐going outcomes of participants in the CCC initiative, while the other looked at the essential elements in sustaining and replicating the initiative. The executive summary provides highlights from the two studies, as well as lessons learned about using data to demonstrate program successes to audiences as part of sustaining and replicating the initiative.
