CWI Rolls-out Campaign to Debunk Community College Myths

Friday, April 25, 2014 - 1:45pm

The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Marketing and Advancement Department is excited to introduce a new video series aimed at debunking community college myths. The 10 videos present misconceptions about community colleges and allow students and faculty an opportunity to set the record straight. Some of the dispelled myths include:

  • Community college students could not get into a university
  • Employers do not value community college education
  • Community college professors are inferior to those at a university

The videos will be an integral part of the 2014 College of What if campaign, which will run throughout the summer. The videos are also integrated into the third-annual $1,000 What if Scholarship contest that is currently running on Facebook. Participants will be voting on their favorite myth video as part of the submission process. To watch the Debunking Community College Myths videos visit www.collegeofwhatif.com. The videos are also available to download on myCWI under College Resources>Current Marketing>Videos
