Via Google Street View









Mitchell Technical Institute and Southeast Technical Institute were named among the nation’s top 150 community colleges by The Aspen Institute College Excellence Program. The schools were selected from a pool of nearly 1,000 public two-year colleges.

The schools are now eligible to compete for the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence and $1 million in funds, as well as the Siemens Technical Scholars Program student scholarships. Top ten finalists will be named in May 2018 and a final winner in 2019.

The prize is a recognition of high achievement and performance among America’s community colleges. It recognizes institutions for exceptional student outcomes in four areas: student learning, certificate and degree completion, employment and earnings, and access and success for minority and low-income students.

Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown won the Aspen Prize in 2017.
