When announcing the American Graduation Initiative, President Obama set forth these goals:
• “By 2020, this nation will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.” …
• “…We seek to help an additional 5 million Americans earn degrees and certificates in the next decade” from community colleges
Inspired by these goals set forth in the American Graduation Initiative and fueled by the existing and future needs of our country for skilled workers in today’s knowledge-based society and economy, Anne Arundel Community College is responding with a college-wide initiative, Student Success 2020.
AACC will launch Student Success 2020 Dec. 1, at 2:15 p.m. in the David S. Jenkins Gymnasium on the college’s Arnold, Md., campus. We hope you are able to attend or to send a representative.
Guests will include the deputy assistant secretary for the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Vocational and Adult Education Glenn Cummings.
