Serving Communities, Strengthening the Nation

  1. 1. AMERICA’S COMMUNITY COLLEGES: American Association of Community Colleges Building a Nation of Learners by Advancing America’s Community Colleges
  2. 2. In the News President Barack Obama White House Summit on Community Colleges October 5, 2010 “Now is the time to build a firmer, stronger foundation for growth that will not only withstand future economic storms, but one that helps us thrive and compete in a global economy. It’s time to reform our community colleges so that they provide Americans of all ages a chance to learn the skills and knowledge necessary to compete for the jobs of the future.”
  3. 3. In the News “…Community colleges and vocational schools train and retrain workers, often in close collaboration with private employers, and in many cases they perform this function at a relatively low cost. Although helping workers acquire up-to- date skills is always important, it is especially critical now, when long spells of unemployment are threatening the longer-term employability and productivity of many.” Ben S. Bernanke Chairman of the Federal Reserve System Wall Street Journal March 3, 2011
  4. 4. In the News “By 2018, we will need 22 million new college degrees— but will fall short of that number by at least 3 million postsecondary degrees, Associate’s or better. In addition, we will need at least 4.7 million new workers with postsecondary certificates.” Carnevale, Smith, and Strohl (2010)
  5. 5. American Association of Community Colleges Mission Statement: To Build a Nation of Learners by Advancing America’s Community Colleges
  6. 6. Community College and Career Training Grants Program Called “The Largest Investment in Two-Year Institutions since the G.I. Bill” by Education Secretary Arne Duncan, this U.S. Department of Labor program will award $2 billion over four years to colleges for retraining trade-displaced workers and the development and use of evidence-based learning materials.
