The Aspen Institute recognized Renton Technical College as one of the nation’s top 150 community colleges.
The honor comes with a chance to compete for the 2015 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence and $1 million in prize funds.
The prize, awarded every two years, is the nation’s signature recognition of high achievement and performance among its community colleges.
“The selection of Renton Technical College by the Aspen Institute shines a spotlight on the exceptional work that RTC’s faculty and staff are doing to support student success,” said Steve Hanson, president at Renton Technical College, in a statement.
The Aspen Institute identified the top 150 community colleges from a pool of 1,000 through an assessment of institutional performance, improvement and equity on student retention and completion measures.
Ten finalists will be named in fall 2014, and the winner will be announced in early 2015. Learn more at www.AspenPrize.org.
