Four ACD College Eligible for $1 Million Aspen Prize

 For the first time, four of the colleges in the Alamo Colleges District have been named to the list of 150 community colleges in the U.S. eligible to compete for the 2019 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence, the nation’s signature recognition of high achievement and performance in America’s community colleges. The four colleges, Alamo Colleges District – San Antonio College, St. Philip’s College, Palo Alto College and Northwest Vista College, were selected from a pool of nearly 1,000 public two-year colleges nationwide to compete for the $1 million Aspen Prize.


“We are elated to garner this national recognition of the excellence that is reflected in the achievements and renown of our colleges,” said Alamo Colleges District Chancellor Dr. Bruce Leslie. “I congratulate the college presidents, faculty, administrators and staff whose commitment and dedication has earned this honor,” he added.


Awarded every two years since 2011, the Aspen Prize recognizes institutions with outstanding achievements in four areas: learning; certificate and degree completion; employment and earnings; and high levels of access and success for minority and low-income students. 
The four Alamo Colleges District colleges will move forward to the next round of the competition for the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence by submitting an application to be reviewed through a rigorous evaluation for a spot on the top ten Aspen Prize finalists list. Top ten finalists will be named in May 2018. The Aspen Institute will then conduct site visits to each of the finalists and collect additional data. A distinguished Prize Jury will select a grand prize winner, finalist(s) with distinction, and rising star(s) in spring 2019.
