Thaddeus Stevens College and Lancaster County Career & Technology Center have been included in the Aspen Institute’s list of 150 community colleges eligible for their prestigious Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence.

  1. Student success in persistence, completion, and transfer;
  2. Consistent improvement in outcomes over time; and
  3. Equity in outcomes for students of all racial/ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.
