Each week the White House highlights “Champions of Change” who are making an impact in communities and helping America rise to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
In September, UCCS Chancellor Pam Shockley-Zalabak, was selected as a “Champion of Change” and participated in a roundtable discussion on the positive impact of many community colleges across the nation. Shockley-Zalabak talked about the Southern Colorado Education Consortium, a partnership between two and four-year colleges in southern Colorado to improve student success in the region. (More)
