Renton college earns national honor
February 6, 2014
The Aspen Institute has 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 community colleges.
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 this fall; the winner will be announced in early 2015. Learn more at www.AspenPrize.org.
