Community colleges…..State is expanding their role

Upon reviewing the State of Ohio’s budget for 2018 – 2019, we noticed the change in thought process about the mission of Community colleges.  (Comment: they must have some great lobbyists at the State House.)

Offering Bachelor’s Degrees at Community Colleges Where Demand Is Not Being Met: A new budget provision allows applied bachelor’s degree programs to be offered through Ohio’s community colleges in areas where Ohio’s public and private universities do not offer specialized degree programs. This provides another low-cost pathway for students and strengthens Ohio’s ability to meet workforce demands in the Knowledge Economy.

Strengthening Pathways to a Low-Cost Degree: The state’s new budget encourages more agreements between community colleges and four-year universities to allow students to complete three years of their coursework at a community college and finish their degree at a four-year university.
