LTC named one of Top 150 Community Colleges by the Aspen Institute

Aspen Prize 2017

LTC is proud to be named to the Aspen Institute’s Top 150 Community Colleges. The Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence honors those institutions that strive for and achieve exceptional levels of success for all students, while they are in college and after they graduate. According to the Aspen Institute, a comprehensive review of publicly available data indicated these 150 two-year institutions—from 35 states—demonstrated strong outcomes considering three areas of student success:

  • student success in persistence, completion, and transfer;
  • consistent improvement in outcomes over time; and
  • equity in outcomes for students of all racial/ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.

As one of the Top 150 community colleges, LTC is recognized as a college employing innovative strategies and achieving excellent results for students. The bar for the Aspen Prize, says the Aspen Institute, is intentionally set high in order to identify those institutions that have demonstrated exceptional levels of student success.
