In Support of Community Colleges

Sub-zero windchills and stacks of grading can bring anyone down. Here’s a reminder that we’re doing important work:

 

“One former community college president I know was asked if her dream job was to be president at Harvard. And she said that while it’s clearly a special place, the students who attend Harvard would likely be successful with or without that university. Whereas for many of the students who attended her college, there was no backup school. Their lives were changed fully and completely by community college. In the vast, complicated and expensive world of higher education, it was their only, their everything.”
