• Student Success


  • By offering MHCC students affordable textbook solutions, we will remove a major obstacle to student success. Unaffordability of higher education is one of the biggest obstacles to students accessing, persisting, and completing their college education.

    Student Success: Enrollment, Retention, Completion ... and Engagement!

    By offering MHCC Students affordable textbook solutions through the Library and Bookstore, we'll remove a major obstacle to Student Success:

    • Student Enrollment: when word gets out the MHCC textbooks are free or nearly free, this will attract prospective students
    • Student Retention: affordability of higher education is one of the biggest obstacles to students staying in school--they can't afford it. So anything we can do to make MHCC programs more affordable to students will positively impact Student Retention.
    • Student Completion: the longer they stay in school, the more likely they are to graduate.
    • Student Engagement: the more engaged students are--if they are included in the OER implementation process by fine-tuning the OER resources for next terms students--the more likely they are to have a sense of purpose for being at MHCC, beyond themselves. Boosting Student Engagement will boost Student Satisfaction.
