2011 El Paso Community College - Leah Meyer Austin Award Brochure

El Paso Community College receives the 2011 Leah Meyer Austin Institutional Student Leadership Award for simultaneously increasing student success and college access.  With Achieving the Dream the college instigated a college going culture in a metropolitan border area where 82% of residents are Hispanic, 27% are low-income, and 54% have a high school diploma or less education.

EPCC's multi-faceted strategy reduces the number of students who need developmental courses; improves the performance of students who place in developmental courses; adds to enrollment in gateway courses; expands completion rates in gateway courses; and raises graduation rates.
