Anyone that has high school seniors and/or college age kids knows the cost of college is crushing students. DMACC offers a fantastic alternative to achieve an associates’ degree at nearly half the cost of a state university. With the agreements in place all the credits can transfer to a state university and the student enters the state university as a junior. Another opportunity DMACC offers is to students who are looking for a technical education such as auto tech, welding, CNC machining, nursing, etc. All these degrees require many hours of hands-on experience in brick and mortar structures to help Iowa businesses meet today’s workforce challenges and grow Iowa jobs.
Without world-class facilities we cannot have world-class graduates. I urge you to support the levy as it is a valuable tool in training and teaching the next generation.
