Have You Heard the News?

“The United States has a long tradition of recognizing the significant social and economic benefits of providing high-quality education for as many of its citizens as possible. Community colleges have made a significant contribution to expanding educational opportunities. Attendance at one of these institutions is associated with higher wages, even if a degree is not completed. Evidence suggests that each year of credit at a community college is worth almost as much, in terms of increased earnings potential, as a year at a four-year college.”

–Ben S. Bernanke

Chairman of the Federal Reserve System

“American community colleges are the nation’s

overlooked asset. As the United States confronts

the challenges of globalization, two-year

institutions are indispensable to the American

Future. They are the Ellis Island of American

higher education, the crossroads at which K–12

education meets colleges and universities, and

the institutions that give many students the tools

to navigate the modern world.”
