AACC launches American Graduate initiative “Student Success 2020”

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.
