Some Words of Encouragement
We know that institutions are being challenged right now like never before.
Community colleges are also doing more to help right now than ever before, and serving as vital lifelines to help people meet basic food, housing and other needs, and providing healthcare professionals and medical equipment to communities.
Community College Month is your opportunity to demonstrate the vital importance of your college, and to make an undeniable case for why your college deserves greater public support.
The toolkit includes information to help you make this case.
