Aspen Presidential Fellowship for Community College Excellence

A collaboration between the Graduate School of Education and the Aspen Institute, the Aspen Presidential Fellowship for Community College Excellence is preparing the next generation of community college presidents to lead transformational change so that significantly more students earn valuable credentials and go on to well-paying jobs. Fellows challenge themselves and each other during the ten-month program of residential seminars and leadership mentoring to build bold college-wide strategies to achieve success for all students, while maintaining access. Given the fact that nearly one half of all undergraduate students are community college students in our country, the need for leadership at this level is crucial.

The Graduate School of Education is committed to fundraising $400,000 for this program so that we can continue to help cover the costs involved for each Fellow.
