Adult Diploma Program wins NCSD award
October 27, 2017
The Adult Diploma Program at Cuyahoga Community College can add “award-winning” to its name.
The National Council on Student Development (NCSD) recognized the Tri-C program with its 2017 Terry O’Banion Shared Journey Exemplary Practice Award. The College was named a silver level award recipient.
Programs selected for an O’Banion Award are deemed outstanding because they are highly innovative, represent best practices in the field and serve as a model of the goals of student development.
The inaugural class of Tri-C's Adult Diploma Program graduated this past June, with 63 students completing the Ohio Department of Education pilot program. Each earned a high school diploma and workforce credential needed to land an in-demand job.
The state developed the program to connect undereducated Ohio residents with the education and training needed to secure employment in growth industries.
The NCSD announced the O’Banion Award winners during its annual national conference, held this year at Tri-C’s Eastern Campus in Highland Hills. The organization provides professional development for higher education student development professionals.
