Your Community, Your College
hen you stop to think about what really stands out in this communit , we want your first thought to be Tri-County Technical College—your community college.
It has been a remarkable year, and we are proud of our progress. This report is about the lives we change through education and the partnerships we build with local businesses, industries, and universities that enable us to accomplish things we could never do alone.
Dollar for dollar, Tri-County remains the best value in higher education in the community. We are known for delivering excellent service, top-notch training aligned with industry needs, and learner- centered instruction focused on student success. No one competes at our level—at any price.
Business and industry agree. Now, more than ever before, we are recognized as a key player in the economic prosperity of our community. The services and programs we provide are second to none, and earlier this year we answered the call to expand our capacity by opening the Industrial Technology Center in Sandy Springs.
Parents and students also agree, and the proof is in the numbers. Not only are we seeing an increase in the number of high school graduates choosing to attend Tri-County upon graduation, we also have more students enrolling in TCTC courses for dual credit while still in high school. This fall, sixteen course sections are being taught at seven high schools, and we have 610 high school enrollments on our campuses and learning centers.
In addition to you, our community partners, there is another group of people who play a critical role in our success—our faculty and staff. They do all in their power to make your community college the best it can be—day in and day out. Without their passion and commitment, none of this good work would
We can say with complete confidence that 2013-14 will be an even better year. Already we are poised to expand our training capacity at the new Industrial Technology Center in Sandy Springs and ramp up our new QuickJobs Training Center in Anderson. We also are in the midst of reinventing many of our program offerings to adapt to changing realities in the marketplace and improving the transition to college experience to better position and equip our students for success.
Again, thank you for the role you play in our continued success. We are privileged and proud to be your community college.
