For the second year in a row, Grossmont College is being recognized as a Champion of Higher Education by the Campaign for College Opportunity for its work to significantly increase the number of students earning an Associate Degree for Transfer, an associate’s degree that guarantees transfer to a California State University institution.
“This award is an honor for Grossmont College. It recognizes the diligence and partnership between the college and our students to help them reach their educational goals and full potential, including transfer to impacted California State University campuses,” said Grossmont College President Nabil Abu-Ghazaleh.
The award for the college’s achievements during the 2018-19 academic year will be given at a Nov. 14 formal reception in Los Angeles. Grossmont College was recognized, among other factors, for the third highest percentage of ADTs awarded in California regardless of college size.
