NROC collaborates with a powerful network of member institutions to deliver courses and tools that address the readiness challenges students face today.
Learners must be proficient in math and English to realize academic and vocational opportunity. Nearly half of high school graduates in the United States are not prepared to begin postsecondary studies, and fewer than one quarter of these students will successfully complete college. Armed with NROC content, members are rewriting this narrative.
