 N.Y. Colleges Prepare for Statewide Completion Day 

10/2/2012

A first-of-its-kind, statewide public awareness campaign that is encouraging and supporting students to earn an associate degree is set to kick off this week in New York.

Finger Lakes Community College (FLCC) will lead the Oct. 3 event—New York Completion Day: Commit, Complete, Compete—which will include a variety of festivities, events and completion-oriented campaigns at 37 community colleges in New York.  The statewide effort could serve as a model for other states as public two-year colleges across the country aim to dramatically increase college completion rates by decade’s end, according to supporters. Other states such as Nebraska are already eyeing a similar campaign geared to raise broader awareness to students’ role in committing to complete a credential, whether a degree or certificate.
