Salt Lake Community College has placed third overall in Community College Week’s 2010 ‘Top-100’ list of Associate Degree producing colleges in the United States. Awarding more associate’s degrees than all but two of the nation’s two-year college, SLCC enjoys an unprecedented national ranking on CC Week’s ‘Top-100’ list.
“This tremendous accomplishment is a testament to SLCC's commitment to student access and student success,” said SLCC President Cynthia A. Bioteau. “Our faculty strive to meet the various and widely diverse learning needs and abilities of our students in the classroom, our tutors and advisors work to support our students outside of the classrooms, and our scheduling of classes on-site and on-line provide access to learning around the clock and year-round."
"SLCC views itself as a catalyst for community literacy and economic development. As we appreciate reaching number three in our success for our students, I believe the people who live and work in our community and state are the real recipients of this achievement."
Salt Lake Community College receives this recognition as part of a special report put together each year by Community College Week that features the Top 100 degree and certificate producing two-year institutions.
“By continuing to climb in the national rankings to the highest level in school history, Salt Lake Community College is outperforming colleges that are much larger in student population and geographic footprint,” SLCC Public Relations Director Joy Tlou said.
Community College Week is an independent, impartial publication that compiles its Top-100 list using data collected by the National Center for Education Statistics through the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data Set completions survey that all colleges and universities that are accredited by agencies recognized by the U.S. Department of Education must complete. The list includes institutions from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
