Biden Foundation – Annual Report 2017
The College Promise Campaign is proud to partner with the Biden Foundation to advance our nation’s community colleges.
“Community colleges represent the American drive to lift ourselves up, and they offer a direct pathway to the middle class. As a community college professor, Dr. Biden has personally seen how powerful community colleges can be in changing students’ lives.
Six in ten of the jobs American businesses create before 2020 will require more than a high school diploma — and currently, just four in ten Americans have that education. Community colleges provide a flexible, affordable way for Americans to learn the skills they need in order for them — and our economy — to thrive.
This year, the Biden Foundation highlighted community colleges and the impact they have on American families. We worked in close partnership with the College Promise Campaign to advocate for quality, tuition-free education at community colleges. As the honorary chair, Dr. Biden is an invaluable voice in this effort and promoted successful programs around the country.”
