It’s Community College Month!
Let's celebrate Maryland's 16 community colleges
April is Community College Month and CCBC is celebrating all month long!
In Maryland, there are 16 community colleges that are doing lots of great work to help students earn degrees and credentials, build careers and improve their lives. Our communities are strengthened by a more-educated workforce and community colleges are playing a major role in that endeavor. With 88% of Maryland community college alums remaining in the state and contributing to their local and state economies, community colleges are inherently helping neighborhoods flourish, attracting employers seeking qualified employees and providing opportunities to enrich the lives of students and their families.
