Students attend college to complete a degree because doing so will prepare them for a more fulfilling life and career.  Excellent community colleges enable students to achieve their goals by improving what happens within the college with students long-term goals in mind.  That requires moving beyond traditional measures of access, retention, and completion to also include students’ post-graduation success.  And, it requires that community colleges cultivate strong partnerships with multiple community-based partners, including K-12, universities, employers, and community-based organizations (CBOs) – partnerships essential to ensuring that students move from high school and underemployment to good jobs and bachelor’s degrees, having the supports they need to complete their credentials along the way.  During his keynote address, Josh Wyner, Vice President of the Aspen Institute and Executive Director of Aspen’s College Excellence Program, will share best practices that community colleges are using to meet this goal with a special emphasis on the role of CBO partners
