The Campaign for College Opportunity is proud to announce that the following California Community Colleges have been honored in its inaugural 2022 Excellence in Placement Awards.
These colleges have championed student success by implementing equitable course placement practices that give community college students the opportunity to take college-level courses with the support they need to pass them as outlined in landmark legislation, AB 705.
Together, the honoree campuses are transforming the college experience for California students, particularly thousands of Black and Latinx students now well on their way to a college degree.
