White House Summit on Community College
On October 5, 2010 Dr. Jill Biden will chair the first-ever White House Summit on Community Colleges. The summit is an opportunity to bring together community colleges, business, philanthropy, federal and state policy leaders, and students to discuss how community colleges can help meet the job training and education needs of the nation’s evolving workforce, as well as the critical role these institutions play in achieving the President’s goal to lead the world with the highest proportion of college graduates by 2020.
There are a number of ways to participate:
* Submit a Video. How has the community college experience affected your life?
* Join the Dialogue. The White House has set up an online dialogue to bring together community college administrators, students and stakeholders from around the country to discuss these ideas.
* Plan an Event. You can host a group or watch the live webcast of the plenary session of the summit on October 5.
