Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

American Association of Community Colleges

Washington, D.C.



The association is the leading advocacy and membership organization for the nation’s 1,200 community colleges and their nearly 12 million students. This grant enables it to mount a public relations campaign to help shape understanding of the role, value and agenda of community colleges and to create buy-in for implementing recommendations made by the 21st-Century Commission on the Future of Community Colleges.
