In a report released this month, the Brookings Institution ranked NHTI, Concord's Community College, first in the nation among two-year colleges as measured by the actual mid-career salaries of its graduates.
The Brookings report looked at both two-year and four-year colleges, and attempted to measure the "value-added" to a student's economic status by attending these institutions. In addition to its first-place ranking based on salaries, NHTI ranked #4 among two-year colleges whose alumni possess the most valuable skills, and #8 among two-year colleges whose students hold jobs with the greatest earning power.
"This is incredibly good news for NHTI," says college President Susan B. Dunton. "Every member of our community has had a part in making NHTI a high ranking institution on so many levels. Now we have another form of proof, thanks to the Brookings report."
