Henry Ford Community College ranks in top 100 associate degree producers for 2013


Dearborn, June 26, 2013: Henry Ford Community College earned national recognition this week as one of the top 100 associate degree producers in 2013, according to the June 24, 2013, issue of the national publication Community College Week (www.ccweek.com).


HFCC earned distinction in three specific categories: a rank of 26th in the Top 50 Associate Degree Producers for Education; rank of 31st in the Top 50 Associate Degree Producers for Nursing—Registered, Administration, Research and Clinical; and 71st ranking in the Top 100 Producers of Associate’s Degrees for African Americans. Community College Week used data made available by the U.S. Dept. of Education for the 2013 rankings.


Dr. Stan Jensen, president of HFCC, said that these rankings are an important measuring stick for students when making decisions about which community college to attend.  “There are over 1,250 community colleges in the United States.  Our goal is to increasingly achieve rankings in the top 10 percent of all community colleges,” he said.


Numerous studies indicate that community colleges cost less than four-year schools and represent an important an investment.  For every $1 students invest in their community college education, they will receive $6 in higher future earnings over the course of their careers. 


Analysis by Community College Week for this report also showed that the number of associate’s degrees conferred by community colleges from 2011-12 exceeded more than one million. This represented an eight percent gain from the previous year.


With more than 100 programs of study, university transfer and career training opportunities available, HFCC prepares students for new positions in emerging industries. To learn more about HFCC, visit www.hfcc.edu, or call 800.585.HFCC (4322).
