NVCC Strategizes to Support America’s College Promise

The nonpartisan America’s College Promise campaign seeks to establish two years of free community college education for responsible students throughout the United States. While President Barack Obama brought renewed energy to the goal during his 2015 State of the Union address, free, universal community college education was proposed nearly 70 years ago by President Harry S. Truman.
