Montgomery College

Community colleges enroll nearly half of all undergraduates in the nation, many of them poor and non-white. Some of these students will transfer to and graduate from four-year colleges while others go straight into the workforce, with or without their associate’s degree. Now, President Barack Obama wants to boost access to community college by making it free. We talk with the president of Montgomery College in Maryland about the role two-year schools play in higher education and the challenges of serving a diverse student body.
