About Community College Month
Community College Month is a month-long educational campaign coordinated by the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT). The primary goals of Community College Month are to improve awareness of the economic, academic, and equity advantages of attending community colleges, and bust longtime stigmas wrongly associated with public two-year colleges.
Did you know? Community colleges:
- Provide higher education to students with the fewest resources and the greatest obstacles.
- Are primary educators/certifiers of in-demand nursing and other healthcare professionals.
- Offer the most affordable, high-quality postsecondary education.
- Are the most in-demand institutions during and following times of economic recession.
- Serve the most demographically and socioeconomically diverse students.
- Guarantee fair admissions to all students.
- Are there for their communities in times of crisis.
Without community colleges, many students in the U.S. would not be able to access higher education at all. That's why it's important to celebrate community colleges nationwide and understand how they benefit communities locally.
