White House Summit on Community Colleges

White House Summit on Community Colleges

 

On October 5th, the first-ever White House Summit on Community Colleges was held in Washington, D.C. Lorain County Community College participated in this historic event by hosting our own summit and broadcasting the live discussion from Washington. The White House Summit brought together community colleges, business, philanthropy, federal and state policy leaders, faculty 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. 

The local event included video presentations of students and President Obama’s visit to LCCC; student Anthony Whitmore shared his thoughts on the importance of community college; and students were able to brainstorm solutions to challenges facing community colleges.

“It’s nice to see the college making an effort to get input from students about what can help them achieve their goals,” said John Peshek, an accounting major from Elyria.
