3. CC says the following: “We will be the opportunity institution for every student we serve – essential to our community’s success.”Broadly – and incompletely –  ‘success’ can be interpreted in two ways here. What might they be? Is there a notion of ‘success’ that our community could achieve that is somehow not worth achieving?

Use the ideas from Immanuel Kant and Jeremy Bentham to explicate the two potential meanings of ‘success’. Then, explain how those meanings might yield different interpretations of the passage quoted at the beginning of this prompt. Which notion of ‘success’ is it proper for us to seek to achieve? Or, is there one that it is proper for us to seek to achieve? Defend your answer.
