Sinclair Featured on "The Atlantic" - December 19, 2019

Sinclair Featured on

James Fallows from the Atlantic examines Sinclair's role as one of the largest and oldest community college's in Dayton, Ohio. Excerpt from article:  "What makes Sinclair unusual and worth notice, apart from its long history? I was struck by three aspects. First is the sheer scale of its impact on the community. According to Sinclair officials, at least half of all Dayton-area residents have taken classes there at some point. Second is the way it is trying to broaden access to its programs—for groups ranging from high school students to people in correctional institutions. Third is its integration and cooperation with other parts of the region’s educational and economic structure. You don’t always see research universities and community colleges working together; in Dayton they appear to be doing so."
