Group Wants Million More Calif. Community College Grads

November 12, 2010

The Community College League of California wants the state’s two-year institutions to award one million more certificates and degrees by 2020. The group of community college presidents says this ambitious pledge -- which it plans to roll out next week with a series of recommendations on how to get there -- constitutes California’s share of President Obama’s goal of producing an additional five million community college graduates in the coming decade. To reach the statewide benchmark, the group says each of the state’s 112 community colleges will need to boost its average annual completions from 1,200 to 3,500.
