Washington, DC – Dr. Jill Biden visits Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold, Maryland today. Dr. Biden will visit with college students, teachers, and administrators at Anne Arundel’s Arnold Campus and will tour several facilities there, including the Hotel, Culinary Arts and Tourism Institute which trains students for careers in the hospitality industry. Dr. Biden will be joined by Department of Education Undersecretary Martha Kanter.
This visit is part of Dr. Biden’s ongoing work to showcase how the Obama-Biden Administration is committed to supporting America’s community colleges and their students. As a lifelong educator and community college instructor for the past 17 years, Dr. Biden knows that community colleges are uniquely positioned to graduate more Americans with the skills that businesses and the economy will need to compete in the 21st century. Over the last year and a half she has visited successful job training and completion programs as well as student support programs at community college campuses throughout the country. The White House will release more details on the Summit on Community Colleges in the coming weeks.
