 21st-Century Initiative 

In response to President Obama's education agenda and challenge for community colleges to educate an additional 5 million students with degrees, certificates, or other credentials by 2020, the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) is leading advancement of the next era of community college evolution through its three-phase 21st-Century Initiative.
