We are pleased to announce that CCHA has been awarded funding to begin planning a project aimed at outreach to high school students. The project, “What Does It Mean to be Human Today?”, will see a series of two-week seminars held at five colleges across the country. The five colleges are the Community College of Baltimore County in Baltimore, Maryland; Monroe Community College in Rochester, New York; Collin Community College in McKinney, Texas; San Diego Mesa College in San Diego, California; and Schoolcraft College in Livonia, Michigan.
The Teagle grant funds the planning of the seminars, which will take place in October of 2019. More information on the seminars will be posted as we have it. For now, we would like to congratulate those involved in the planning process and the five schools that will be participating in the project.

According to a new article from Inside Higher Ed, diversity is on the increase at the nation’s two-year colleges. The article is based on information from publicly available degree completions data.
More information from American Academy of Arts & Sciences (AAA&S) survey that CCHA assisted in will be available in the future.
According to the results of the survey, “in 2015, 32.1 percent of the associate degrees in the humanities were awarded to black, Hispanic or Native American students — a 149 percent increase from 1989, when the data were first collected.” This is just some of the great news according to the data collected by AAA&S, and the rest can be found in the article at the link below.
