Well-educated and hard-working citizens give rise to a vigorous economy. Wondering how things work and committing oneself to finishing a degree no matter the obstacles, are characteristics of a Clark student.
The following pages contain a handful of the hundreds of stories of exploration, determination, success and stumbles at Clark. Our community—with a past steeped in rich diversity as you’ll read in Professor Van Forsyth’s piece—abounds with opportunity for tenacious and curious people.
Providing the resources for learning and nurturing entrepreneurial minds is where you shine. This spring, we announced that we reached $17 million toward a $20 million goal for Ensuring a Bright Future: Campaign for Clark College. The success of this campaign will enable our community’s college to broaden access to education and meet the region’s economic and workforce training needs.
We are now focused on raising funds for key areas and we ask for your leadership with:
- Penguin Promise scholarships
- Science, technology, engineering and mathematics education (STEM)
- Excellence Fund for Teaching and Learning, including wired classrooms and other information technologies, and faculty and staff professional development
With less than $3 million dollars to go, together we can enrich the social, cultural and economic vitality of our community, while encouraging inquisitive minds to keep asking how things work.
