The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

CUNY Queensborough Community College

Queensborough Community College, located on a lush 37-acre, tree-lined campus in Bayside, Queens, enrolls more than 16,000 students in transfer and career-degree programs and more than 10,000 in continuing-education programs. Its strengths include the diversity of its student body and a culture of academic excellence reflected in academic programs renowned across the city, state and, in several cases, the nation; an array of instructional support services; and the credentials and research activities of its faculty, nearly 60 percent of whom hold doctoral degrees. In the last several years, the college has committed its resources to ensure that its students receive an education equivalent in quality to that of any private college. In the fall of 2009 Queensborough Community College launched a major initiative, the Freshman Academies, which has yielded a significant increase in student retention and graduation rates. These outcomes led to the establishment of the Queensborough Academies in the fall of 2013, serving all students in all areas of study for their entire academic career at the college. This campus-wide expansion of the Freshman Academies to all full-time students integrates curriculum, pedagogy, and co-curricular activities in a cohesive undergraduate learning experience through a three-pronged student support system: intentional advisement, technology, and High Impact Practices. High Impact Practices are nationally recognized instructional strategies which have been shown to help engage students in their learning and to foster a deeper commitment to achieving the College’s general education outcomes. Queensborough, which enrolls over 16,000 students, is one of the few community colleges in the country offering such a program on this scale. The Queensborough Academies help students get to know each other and their faculty. Dedicated academy spaces provide students with a "home base" on this commuter campus, where they may congregate, learn from one another and develop a support network to help them earn an associate degree. Queensborough is building its reputation as a national leader in the field of research in community college pedagogy, with faculty encouraged and assisted through the college's Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. Most recently, Queensborough Community College was selected by the National Endowment for the Humanities as one of six community colleges in the country to develop a model for integrating its cultural resources into its humanities programs. Queensborough is home to the Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives, the QCC Art Gallery and the Queensborough Performing Arts Center.
