1 College Pathway Programs

2 Dear Community, Throughout its history, Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C ) has been committed to providing top-level educational services to Northeast Ohio. Access to higher education is a key focus of Tri-C. Youth and early college programs at Tri-C are designed to help even more high school students graduate prepared for college-level English and math, allowing them to earn their degrees or certificates more efficiently. One way Tri-C does this is by having its faculty work with high school teachers to implement the new Common Core State Standards, a challenging revision to math, science, English, language arts, and social studies curricula in the high schools. Expect more innovative partnerships beyond our work with K-12 schools. In addition, we are working throughout the community to connect students of all ages with relevant programs that match employer needs with a skilled workforce. We are committed to helping students start and complete technical or academic programs. Tri-C will continue its steadfast and long tradition of community partnerships to help even more students finish high school and go to college through innovative dual-enrollment programs. Critical to the access mission is the challenge to help more members of our community enter college academically prepared. We are changing the way our community has access to learning, and as a consequence of that commitment, we are shaping Northeast Ohio s workforce. Join us! Sincerely, Dr. JaNice Marshall Associate Vice President, Access and Community Engagement 2

3 College Pathway Programs Tri-C s Commitment to our Community Tri-C has implemented many community and K-12 programs that help raise the educational attainment rates necessary for a strong economy. In his inaugural address, Tri-C President Dr. Alex Johnson identified five priorities for the College s community engagement efforts. These include: 1) Focusing on completion with a continued effort toward educational access 2) Working more closely with employers to provide degrees and certificates that have labor market value 3) Communicating the College s message in effective and innovative ways 4) Making the most effective use of resources for the benefit of students 5) Nurturing and growing the College s legacy of collaboration and community engagement Along with these priorities, a focus on access, learning, and success will help more Northeast Ohio students gain critical skills and experiences to prepare them for broader success in our community. Over the past few years, a heightened focus on connecting College and community has helped more people throughout our region access, progress, and succeed in high-quality academic and technical training. College Pathway programs are meeting and exceeding several recommendations from the Complete College Ohio Task Force. These programs engage students and families prior to enrollment in college, broaden awareness of connections between college completion and career opportunities, and expand opportunities for earning college credits that count towards a degree or certificate before graduating from high school. Tri-C annually serves more than 11,000 high school students through various programs on campus or through partner programs at the schools. Tri-C Fact: More than 11,000 community members are reached through Tri-C s youth and early college programs each year. Tri-C Fact: Tri-C serves more than 60,000 students in more than 140 certificate and degree programs each year. 3

We are expanding partnerships with a variety of agencies and organizations to collectively meet the workforce and academic needs of residents throughout Cuyahoga County. Internal Resources like Student Support Services, and the Hispanic Council, help Tri-C expand external programming to engage more community allies.
