Washington’s Pierce College Fort Steilacoom Named Among 10 Finalists for 2019 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence

 
$1 Million Prize Recognizes Excellence in Community College Student Success Outcomes; Winner to be Announced in April 2019
 
Washington, D.C., May 15, 2018 – Washington’s Pierce College Fort Steilacoom was named today as one of 10 finalists for the 2019 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence, the nation’s signature recognition of high achievement and performance in America’s community colleges.
 
Awarded every two years since 2011, the Prize recognizes institutions that achieve high and improving student outcomes, selected from over 1,000 community colleges nationwide. Focused solely on student access and success, the Aspen Prize recognizes community colleges with exceptional achievements in four areas:
 
·         Student learning;
·         Certificate and degree completion while in community college and after transferring to a four-year institution;
·         Employment and earnings rates after graduation; and
·         Access for and success of minority and low-income students.
 
In April 2019, the $1 million Prize purse will be awarded at an event in Washington, D.C. to the winner, two or three finalists-with-distinction, and a “Rising Star” that has achieved exceptional levels of improvement. Between now and then, Aspen will work with a team of national experts to collect extensive, additional data and conduct multi-day site visits to the 10 finalist colleges.
 
Pierce College Fort Steilacoom – Lakewood, WA (10,500 Students)
 
“Pierce College Fort Steilacoom has demonstrated its commitment to graduating more students and ensuring that they are well-prepared for jobs through innovative teaching practices in the classroom and intensive advising supports outside the classroom,” said Joshua Wyner, Executive Director of the Aspen Institute’s College Excellence Program in Washington, D.C. “The college’s long-term, persistent efforts to improve have paid off for those who stand to benefit most – its students.”
 
Pierce College Fort Steilacoom stands out as one of the nation’s top community colleges for many reasons, including:
 
·         An exceptional three-year graduation/transfer rate of 59 percent, compared to the national average of 40 percent.
·         Strong programs to help veterans succeed, including a veterans’ resource center and an educational liaison to help veterans transition into school.
·         A scaled structured program to support faculty in improving teaching practice and student learning, offering salary increases to faculty who participate in structured professional development.
 
During the remainder of 2018, the Aspen Institute will complete a rigorous review process that includes examination of data on learning, graduation, workforce, and equitable outcomes for all students as well as multi-day site visits to each of the 10 finalist institutions. In early 2019, a distinguished Prize Jury will select a grand prize winner, finalists-with-distinction, and a Rising Star.
 
The 2019 Aspen Prize is generously funded by the Joyce Foundation, The Kresge Foundation, and the Siemens Foundation.
 
 
The Aspen Institute College Excellence Program aims to advance higher education practices, policies, and leadership that significantly improve student outcomes. Through the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence, the Siemens-Aspen Community College STEM Award, and other initiatives, the College Excellence Program works to improve colleges’ understanding and capacity to teach and graduate students, especially the growing population of low-income and minority students on American campuses.
