Obama to increase support of certificates, two-year degrees and vocational training with American Graduation Initiative.

July 14, 2009

President Obama announced an increased financial interest and support of certificates, two-year degrees and vocational training with the American Graduation Initiative.

The announced news is exciting considering that UVU is positioned uniquely within the state and region to continue the role of being a community college with the added advantage of university benefits. UVU CTE is quickly moving forward within the state and region to unite workforce development with two year degrees.

Recent studies confirm that CTE students demonstrate increased rigor, completion and occupational success compared to students in a general track.

It is a pleasure for the UVU CTE department to be a part of this great movement.
