LANSING, Mich., April 19, 2023 — State Rep. Jason Morgan (D-Ann Arbor) introduced a resolution today to declare April 2023 as Community College Month in the state of Michigan. The resolution honors community college teachers, students and employees who make invaluable contributions to Michigan’s educational landscape.
“I’ve seen firsthand how community colleges transform lives,” said Morgan, a former instructor at Washtenaw Community College. “These colleges help our students pursue further education and attain their dream jobs, all while propelling our economy forward. They provide a great service to our state, which is worthy of recognition.”
Michigan’s 31 community and tribal colleges enroll about 270,000 students and grant about 19,400 degrees and 6,100 certificates each year. Over half of the students who earn bachelor’s degrees in Michigan have completed courses at a community college.
