The Advocate of Affordable College Blog

At the Advocate, we'll publish articles from experts, advocates, and educators on important community college issues such as: funding, marketing, readiness, enrollment, retention, and transfer.

The Affordable College Public Benefit Corporation today announced the launch of a new blog. The editorial mission of The Advocate of Affordable College blog is to find new ways to help even more community college students afford and attain a bachelor's degree.

Sean O'Brien, Founder at Affordable College, said, “We’re a public benefit corporation with a mission to help more community college students afford and attain a bachelor’s degree. We’re educators and entrepreneurs dedicated to assuring affordable paths to success for low-income learners – many of whom are increasingly choosing not to enroll in college. We’ve launched The Advocate of Affordable College blog to be a trusted source of information – helping potential students discover the most affordable path toward their goal of a bachelor’s degree, and connecting Community Colleges and Universities in mutually beneficial partnerships via our Transfer Student Marketplace.”

Greg Jarboe, the editor of The Advocate of Affordable College blog, said, “Launching a blog is easy enough. But launching a high-quality blog that is trusted, provides substantial value, and is recognized as an authoritative source when mentioned by name requires great content and great commitment from everyone involved. We want to create the latter.”

Jarboe added, “To reach this goal, we will publish articles that are written by experts, advocates, educators, and students who know the topic well; cover the topics driven by the genuine interests of readers of this site; provide original content or information, original reporting, original research, or original analysis; describe both sides of a story; are edited well; provide a complete or comprehensive description of the topic; and contain insightful analysis or interesting information that is beyond obvious.”

For example, some of the initial posts on The Advocate of Affordable College blog are entitled, “Community College Revenue Sources Are Shifting as Pew Charts Show,” “Community College Funding Sources: State Cuts Impact Affordability,” “Community College Enrollment Statistics are Grim and Grimmer,” and “America’s Best Community Colleges to be Identified Again in August.”
