February 10, 2014

PHSC was recently named as one of the nation’s top 150 community colleges by the Aspen Institute College Excellence Program making it eligible to compete for the $1 million fund for the 2015 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence. The Aspen Prize is awarded every two years and PHSC was selected as a top college in 2012 as well. “We are pleased to be among the 150 community colleges in the United States and one of the 15 institutions within the Florida College System chosen to compete for the Aspen prize fund,” said PHSC President Katherine Johnson, Ed.D. “I am extremely proud that PHSC is recognized for its continued demonstration of student success in the areas of persistence, completion and transfer; consistent improvement in outcomes over time; and equity in outcomes for students of all racial/ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.” Some seven million students—youth and adult learners—enroll in America’s nearly 1,200 public and private community colleges every year. The top 150 colleges will compete for the prestigious honor following a year-long research process into how well its students learn, complete degrees and get jobs with competitive wages after graduating. A full list of the 150 community colleges is available at www.AspenCCPrize.org. Prize winners will be announced in early 2015.
