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

Study of the effectiveness of co-locating One-Stop Career Centers on community college campuses in North Carolina.

In 2014-2015, the Heldrich Center worked 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 had been established relatively recently and not all community colleges have them, some students have had greater exposure to the program for reasons exogenous to their own characteristics and choices. The study estimated the impact of One-Stop co-location on students’ choice of educational program, persistence, and employment outcomes.
