The community college is an attempt to realize the promise of the Declaration of Independence: the ideal that all are created equal. It is to higher education what universal suffrage is to the ballot, voting rights for all, higher education for all. The mission of the community college is to provide access to education for those to whom it has traditionally been denied.
