Community Colleges since the Great Recession. Tuesday, December 6, 2016 930-1100AM

HBCUs,,,,I can't recall if many have setup a pipeline for graduates of even a neighboring community college to attend your campuses with direct admission.

Basic, simple AA degrees should get others in.  Also has been an issue with transfer of credits from one institution to another.  Interesting.

Community colleges, which enroll more than 40 percent of postsecondary students, continue to gain prominence in discussions of public policies for higher education and job training. In 2010, the federal government invested $2 billion in nearly two-thirds of the nation’s community colleges to build capacity and spur innovation in job training. Proposals for free tuition at community colleges have gained national attention. A significant share of the Pell grant expansion has benefited community college students.
Community colleges serve large numbers of academically underprepared students with fewer resources than any other sector of higher education. This has exacerbated their challenges in increasing completion rates and meeting industry needs.
This panel will focus on the emerging issues facing community colleges since the Great Recession. The discussion will highlight variation among institutions and differences across state systems, along with tested policy and institutional solutions that bolster student success and economic development. Panelists will discuss findings from two new Urban Institute briefs.

Registration is required to attend this event.

  • David Baime, senior vice president for government relations and policy analysis, American Association of Community Colleges
