This Week

October 15, 2014

Community College of Aurora

 

Betsy Oudenhoven

       Betsy Oudenhoven is president of CCA.  She's been there three years and served as interim president in 2013 and was made permanent in 2014.

CCA was chartered in 1983.  At that time, CCA didn't have a campus.  Classes were held in office buildings on Chambers and one on Black Hawk.

CCA now has a campus in Center Tech and also on Lowry.

       The vision is to be the college where every student succeeds. As a community college it has an "open door" policy.  Any students that have the requisite credits are elegible to enrole.

       Students can take two years of classes that will transfer to a 4 year university that will lead to a BA or classes that lead to a certification to get a job.

       The advantage of CCA is that classes are small and it caters to student needs.  80% of the students are part time.

        Some of the successes that CCA has enjoyed are:

                         Model U.N.:   A one day event modeled after a day at The UN.

Funds are raised to send students to NY to the    UN in New York City.

Colorado Film School that ranks in the top 25 nationally.

 

Student Success Center.  Students can get tutoring.  80% of the students complete their programs successfully.


   Full tuition is $5,000 yearly.  79% of the students receive aid.
