 College Promise 

> FACT SHEET: White House Launches New $100 Million Competition to Expand Tuition-Free Community College Programs that Connect Americans to In-Demand Jobs

The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) joins President Barack Obama in the announcement of the College Promise Campaign, which aims to make community college as universal as public high schools in the nation’s educational system. 

The College Promise Campaign is a national, nonpartisan, local- and state-leg higher education initiative—moving the nation fully into the 21st Century where completing two-years of college is becoming a necessity to achieving the American Dream.

AACC, in conjunction with the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT), released Supporting the College Promise, a toolkit to help community college leaders propel the movement to expand educational opportunities for qualified students to include two years of community college education.
