“I really like having Running Start students in my class.”
Fortunately for psychology professor John Governale, Clark has the largest Running Start program in Washington, with 10 percent of the state’s Running Start students, significantly more than any other college.
Running Start enrollment has nearly doubled in the past seven years from 993 enrolled in 2007 to 1,849 in winter 2014, according to Clark’s Department of Planning and Effectiveness. Junior and senior high school students enrolled through the Running Start program constituted 15 percent of students enrolled at Clark last quarter.
