New research from the Center for Community College Student Engagement (CCCSE) found that the majority of students who attend community college also work simultaneously.
The report, “The Intersection of Work and Learning,” surveyed almost 25,000 students entering 74 colleges during the fall 2019 semester.
“[Working students] are our future and we need to invest in our future,” said Dr. Tod Allen Farmer, president of Weatherford College (WC). “The working students are going to be our leaders in the next generation and they will shape our society. It is imperative that we support them and help them become productive citizens.”
