With New Americans comprising approximately 25% of the student population, an increased focus on immigrant populations is vital in order for community colleges to meet their completion and workforce development goals.
Our Presidents for New American Success Pledge asks community college presidents for their commitment to advance immigrant and refugee student success and help our economy thrive. We have laid out five tenets and related action items that Presidents for New American Success agree to support. Please join us as we work to achieve increased immigrant and refugee integration and a growing economy.
“Now more than ever we need to enlist other leading community colleges in our cause to support a multicultural and diverse student body that is vital for the economic, social, and cultural vibrancy of our communities and our country as well.”
—Dr. Belinda S. Miles
President, Westchester Community College
