    Serving Communities, Strengthening the Nation Serving Communities, Strengthening the Nation Presentation Transcript

    • AMERICA’S COMMUNITY COLLEGES: American Association of Community Colleges Building a Nation of Learners by Advancing America’s Community Colleges
    • 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.”
    • 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
    • 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)
    • American Association of Community Colleges Mission Statement: To Build a Nation of Learners by Advancing America’s Community Colleges
