This week, South Louisiana Community College (SLCC) is celebrating Louisiana Community College Week with more than 40 events across its eight-parish Acadiana footprint.
The purpose of Community College Week is to inform prospective students, stakeholders, and the community about SLCC’s programs, its mission, and its value to the region.
Events include high school visits across its parishes, events at SLCC campuses, a social media campaign, and a College Colors Day on Friday. The college’s Center for Minority Excellence is hosting a College Day at Northside High School to talk about college options to the school’s juniors and seniors. A new organization for high-performing first-generation students, Alpha Alpha Alpha or “Tri-Alpha,” is launching this week at SLCC.
SLCC is a top community college in Louisiana, and it was recently named a Top 150 institution from the Aspen Institute out of more than 1,000 community colleges in America. It is eligible to compete for the $1 million Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence in 2023. 
The college serves more than 15,000 students each year and offers over 50 programs through credit programs, short-term training, and adult basic education. As an open-access institution, SLCC serves a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional students, and more than three out of four of its students (76%) are classified as first-generation college students.
“SLCC – and community colleges in general – are the cornerstone of our nation’s higher education ecosystem. We serve as a powerful engine of workforce development and preparation for a four-year university,” said Vincent June, chancellor of SLCC. “I am proud of the critical role SLCC plays in our region to provide access to anyone who seeks an education. The ‘American dream’ truly begins in our community colleges.”
