SEATTLE — Nine Washington community colleges, including Clark College in Vancouver, are on list of the 150 best in the nation.
The Aspen College Excellence Program picks its top 150 by doing a data review. It picks the schools that show the most student success, in term of persistence, completion and transfer.
The program wants to see consistent improvement over time, as well as equity in outcomes for students of all racial/ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.
This web development insructor is very proud of Clark’s students, administration, staff and faculty.
Recent Clark College Web Development graduate Troy Uyan was part of a five person team that designed and developed the new Clark County website.
Troy’s role in the project was that of front end developer and co-designer of the site. Troy also produced all of the training videos and other resources.
I’m super proud of Troy and what he has accomplished.
