It will also serve as an opportunity to provide support for colleges to work together on dramatically increasing college completion, especially for first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented students.“I am honored to join other nationwide leaders in higher education as we collaborate and focus on ways to improve student success,” Miller said. “PCC has worked diligently to meet the needs of its students and help them prepare for a 21st global workplace.”As one of a small number of community colleges that were selected to attend the summit, PCC has a nearly 100-year history of serving the communities of Northeast Los Angeles. The college serves a diverse student population of more than 25,000 students and is 46 percent Hispanic/Latino, 21 percent Asian/Pacific Islander, and 5 percent African American. This diversity makes PCC one of the few colleges in the country that is both a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) and Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (ANNAPISI)-eligible.For more information on how to cover the Summit, please contact Media [email protected] and include “College Opportunity Summit Coverage” in the subject line.
