Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Labette Community College

Parsons, Kan.
$1 million



Located in a former coal-mining area where medical facilities lack adequate staffing to serve low-income residents, the college offers access to training in the allied health professions for first-generation and minority students. The construction of a LEED-rated Health Sciences Building, assisted by this challenge grant, enables the institution to increase enrollment in these high-demand programs.
