Study of the Effects of Co-locating One-Stop Career Centers on Community College Campus

The Heldrich Center is working with the Community College Research Center at Teachers College, Columbia University on a study of the effectiveness of One-Stop Career Centers co-located on community college campuses in North Carolina. Because the co-located One-Stop Career Centers have been established relatively recently (late 1990s) and not all community colleges have them, some students have had greater exposure to the program for reasons exogenous to students’ own characteristics and choices. The study will estimate the impact of One-Stop co-location on students’ choice of educational program, persistence, and employment outcomes.
