Issue 3 on the November ballot keeps affordable, high quality, job-oriented college education in our community. 85% of Tri-C graduates live and work in Northeast Ohio.
Local employers depend on Tri-C for up-to-date job training; and a well-trained labor force helps the whole economy.
Issue 3 is critical to keeping Tri-C Where Futures Begin:
Helps keep tuition low and affordable so college remains accessible.
Keeps educational technology up-to-date to prepare students for today’s jobs.
Keeps high quality programs and faculty with experience in their field.
Issue 3 is modest and adds $1.20 per $100,000 home value.
Issue 3 provides almost 25% of Tri-C’s operating budget.
If it fails Tri-C would have to cut a number of critical programs that prepare students for the workforce and/or to transfer to four-year schools; and reduce job training partnerships with area employers.
Without Issue 3, Tri-C would have to reduce the number of faculty, counselors and staff, making class sizes larger and course schedules less convenient.
