Issue 6 for Cuyahoga Community College
Every day, more good jobs require college education. Tri-C is the leading educator for good jobs such as those in our community’s technical workforce and health care sectors, as well as for students preparing to enter four-year degree programs.
As an affordable, high quality college, Tri-C is crucial to the success of our local economy and families. That is why our proposed 2014 levy is a necessity to:
- Keep college education affordable and accessible for Cuyahoga County’s students and families
- Protect the local economy and workforce competitiveness with up-to-date education and training
- Enable students to earn 2 years of college credit affordably, seek bachelor’s degrees, and graduate with far less debt
- Maintain access to high quality technical degrees, university transfer courses and job (re)training with up-to date technology
Tri-C has cut millions to save money and focus our resources on student success. Without the levy, Tri-C would have to cut $40 million more annually, which would require serious reductions in programs and access to higher education. That would be devastating to our community, and the 60,000 students a year who attend Tri-C.
The proposed levy is to sustain Tri-C’s enormous educational and economic impact. We believe the additional investment of $2.63 per month ($100,000 home) is essential for the hard-working students, families, businesses and economy Tri-C has served effectively for 50 years.
