Description

You’re invited to attend the award ceremony for the 2019 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence on Tuesday, April 2, from 12pm-2pm at the Knight Conference Center at the Newseum in Washington, DC. In addition to celebrating the accomplishments of the finalist institutions, the Prize ceremony will feature remarks from key higher education, business, and philanthropic leaders about the importance of community colleges for advancing social mobility and talent development in all corners of the nation.

The $1 million Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence focuses on rewarding and shining a spotlight on community colleges with both strong and improving student outcomes. With a singular focus on student success, the Aspen Prize assesses institutional performance in four areas: student learning, certificate and degree completion, high rates of employment and earnings for graduates, and equity in access and success for students of color and low-income students.

Featured speakers include:

- Members of the Aspen Prize Jury, including co-chairs Ángel Cabrera, President of George Mason University, and Kathy Warden, Chief Executive Officer and President of Northrop Grumman

- Leaders of the 2019 Aspen Prize Finalist Colleges

- Leaders from ECMC Foundation, Joyce Foundation, The Kresge Foundation, and Siemens Foundation

A buffet lunch will be available at 11:50am. Please use the Freedom Forum entrance on 6th Street (between Pennsylvania Ave and C Street). The Knight Conference Center is located on the 7th floor.
