President Rivera attributed this success to our strong focus on popular and essential programs, which not only attract students but also meet critical workforce needs. With 24 degrees offered, 4 certificate programs, and several six-week and six-month short-term training options, Thaddeus Stevens College places a strong emphasis on programs that are vital not just for student careers but also for community development.  

A key part of the school’s mission revolves around inclusion and diversity, with a core amount of the student body coming from minority backgrounds, and a growing representation of women on campus. Mr. Rivera also highlighted efforts to make education more affordable and accessible, including initiatives to reduce the financial burden on students and their families.
