SWTJC ELIGIBLE TO APPLY FOR ASPEN INSTITUTE PROGRAM
SWTJC, a CTN campus, is one of eight Texas colleges eligible to apply for the 2023 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence, one of the nation’s most prestigious recognitions for community colleges.
Awarded every two years, the $1 million prize aims to spotlight exemplary colleges and highlight their contributions to their students and their communities, and to share leading ideas and innovations from top colleges to advance student success and close equity gaps.
Of the 150 colleges eligible to compete for the 2023 Aspen Prize, many are active members of the ATD Network, the nation’s largest non-governmental reform movement for student success and educational equity. Spanning a dozen states, these institutions represent the diversity of the ATD Network and of the community college sector as a whole. Their commitment to equitable student success is a defining characteristic of the ATD Network.
